What is Emerging Leaders?
Emerging Leaders is a group of professionals ranging in age from 20s-40s who are passionate about supporting the work of Phoenix Children’s Hospital via three pillars: Lead, Give, Serve. They participate in volunteer, social, fundraising, personal and professional development activities enabling them to network and build relationships with likeminded leaders in the community.
Membership in Emerging Leaders also enables you to volunteer at Phoenix Children’s without having to commit to the stringent onboarding and scheduling process for traditional hospital volunteers.
All of the money raised by Emerging Leaders goes 100% back to programs at Phoenix Children’s Hospital voted on by members.
How do I sign up?
Are there any requirements to be a member?
Yes. Annual membership dues are a $250 donation for individuals and $400 donation for married couples. 100% of membership dues are tax deductible and qualify for the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit that enables you to get back dollar for dollar what you contribute to PCH up to $400 for single filers or $800 for joint filers.

We also ask that members sign up for shifts volunteering at Phoenix Children’s Hospital either playing Bingo in the Child Life Zone or taking the Family Care Cart to inpatient rooms. It’s a fun and rewarding experience to connect with the families we serve, meet other Emerging Leaders members and hospital staff!
