When we talk about Care Fund’s impact, its Advisory Councils in Greater Phoenix and Southern Arizona are much of the reason why! These members form direct relationships in their respective communities in support of Care Fund families. They fundraise by:

  • Requesting event sponsorships from industry colleagues

  • Starting “transactional” or payroll giving programs within their companies

  • Investing their time to plan and execute events

  • Establishing company or colleague matching programs or competitions

  • Inspiring others to give to Care Fund for a dollar-for-dollar tax credit up to $800

  • Creating lasting networks and memories in support of an incredible mission
