ABOUT US EXECUTIVE COUNCIL CHARITIES & EXECUTIVE COUNCIL 70

Established as the volunteer force supporting the activities of Executive Council Charities, Executive Council 70 is a group of working professionals dedicated to helping our community’s youth through a series of fundraising events and initiatives. Originally formed in 1972, our 70 Active and 250 Life Members have been assisting youth organizations for more than four decades and have raised more than $10 million dollars in just the past five years.

Executive Council Charities is a 501(c)(3) Arizona nonprofit corporation dedicated to helping youth in our community. Our goal is to provide grants to programs and nonprofit organizations focused on helping youth in Arizona overcome adversity and reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Funds are raised through signature events like The Original Taste, Holiday Classic and Cantina along with direct contributions to our annual campaign – Support Arizona Youth. Executive Council Charities has supported more than 125 charities this past year, distributing more than $2.2 million. With the help of numerous partners and the support of the community, we are able to meet our charitable goals.
