About Phoenix Philanthropists

Phoenix Philanthropists Mission Statement

The Phoenix Philanthropists enrich lives and support organizations in the Phoenix metropolitan community by connecting giving individuals with volunteer activities and other opportunities to contribute their time, talents and resources.

Organizational Values

We believe that philanthropy is a matter of the heart. By “empowering” individuals who have a desire to make an impact, we change lives in our community primarily through volunteerism.
The Phoenix Philanthropists value:

  • Empowering people
  • Giving
  • Selfless acts
  • Uniqueness of others
  • Passion
  • Integrity
  • Fun
  • Inspiring others
  • Enthusiasm
  • Friendly personalities
  • Encouraging growth
  • Including others

We believe that time volunteered with a nonprofit partner helps their clientele and often can resonate in other areas of our community. As anyone that has volunteered will tell you, you get more than you give. We have also seen that frequently people want to volunteer but are not sure how to start or where to volunteer at an event. The Phoenix Philanthropists provide that connectivity between worthy causes and giving individuals.

Areas of Focus

Volunteer Service and Staffing, Philanthropy Education, Philanthropic Scholarships


Our Footprint

In 2012, the Phoenix Philanthropists completed over 15,000 hours volunteering at events of our non profit partners. This remarkable number allows each of our partners to operate with smaller staffs and thus provide more services to their customers and patrons. Since our origin, Phoenix Philanthropists has provided over 45,000 volunteer hours to our non-profit partners. These numbers do not include the countless hours of planning and meeting by our committee members and various project team members. Thanks to one and all. This year will be even bigger!

The Phoenix Philanthropists is a 501(c)(3) organization
