Become a Legacy Donor

National Council of Jewish Women, Arizona (NCJW AZ), is a Valley leader in progressive social justice reform. Our grassroots organization of volunteers and advocates turn ideals into action to drive transformative social change.

We create change and make an impact through our social justice and legislative advocacy and by meeting critical community needs as we did in 2023 creating and launching Ruth Place a healing and empowerment program for sexual violence survivors.

To sustain our mission, we need your support, and the Life and Legacy program is the perfect vehicle to ensure YOUR legacy in perpetuity. Life and Legacy is a partnership initiative of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and communities across America to ensure the sustainability of organizations like ours by building endowment funds. In Phoenix, the Grinspoon Foundation’s partner in the Center for Jewish Philanthropy.

Our Legacy donors are individuals, just like you, who believe that courageous, compassionate, powerful, and, above all, pioneering engagement across diverse communities can make a difference in today’s challenging world. They believe in the wisdom of our tradition that is captured in the statement, “You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.”  (Pirke Avot)
