Leadership Circle 2020 Grant Application Process

Phoenix Children’s Hospital Leadership Circle fund provides one time grants to physicians and programs of the hospital. The Leadership Circle fund supports the mission of Phoenix Children’s Hospital: to provide hope, healing, and the best health care for children and their families.

Leadership Circle was founded in 2004 to help allocate funds to the most needed areas of the Hospital. Since then, the Leadership Circle has funded 76 projects with more than $5 million in funding for essential programs, projects and research.
