The 2018 Leadership Circle Directors held a special home event in March 2018.  Leadership Circle Director, DeeDee Vecchione, and her husband Ken graciously hosted the event at their beautiful home. Guests were invited to hear from Phoenix Children’s staff whose projects had been previously funded by Leadership Circle. The evening was a great success and resulted in not only innovative and inspiring information about Phoenix Children’s but also new Leadership Circle members!  See pictures here.

January Birthday in the Zone!

Our 2018 Leadership Circle Directors hosted a January Birthday in The Zone at Phoenix Children’s Hospital! With a Super Hero theme, the party was a spectacular success! Patients, family members and care givers enjoyed personal appearances by not only Spider-Man but Wonder Woman too. The kiddos enjoyed games, crafts and lots of prizes! It was a wonderful opportunity for our kiddos to take a break from their clinical setting and just enjoy being kids! See all the fun pictures from the party.

Be Part of a Passionate and Committed Community

3d-heart-imapct-report-rv300Founded in 2004, the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Leadership Circle is a committed and compassionate group of community leaders who care deeply about ill and injured children — and act together on that shared passion.

Annually, each Leadership Circle member gives a minimum donation of $1,000, with many members giving more. These annual gifts are pooled and used to fund specific programs and projects that make a profound difference on the delivery of world-class care at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Leadership Circle members do much more than give financially. Each year, through a highly competitive grant process, Phoenix Children’s physicians, researchers and administrators present their case for support at an annual luncheon in the spring, after which members vote to determine how their funds will be prioritized and allocated throughout the hospital.

In just over a decade Leadership Circle has funded over $4.6M in programs with 100% directly helping children and families. These exciting programs include uncovering new treatments for pediatric neurological conditions, improving critical care for newborns and children in respiratory failure, find alternative treatments through molecular medicine for the treatment of malignant brain tumors and implementing a 3D Heart Printing program — just to name a few. Join Leadership Circle 2019.

Through the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit you can give to Phoenix Children’s, and get it all back!
