Supporter Spotlight: Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust

The impact of Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust’s contributions to nonprofit organizations in Maricopa County is awe-inspiring. Most recently, during a time of uncertainty for many, Piper Trust made the historic move of sharing all its endowment earnings from the last 15 months of $123 million in one day. Child Crisis Arizona is honored to be included among the 71 organizations aided on this incredible day of giving.

For more than four decades, Virginia Galvin-Piper has been a treasured supporter of Child Crisis Arizona. Her legacy and generous spirit has continued through the trustees of Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust.

At Child Crisis Arizona, contributions from the Trust have provided wrap-around care and thousands of nights of safe sleep for children and youth in crisis needing emergency shelter. Its support was instrumental in creating our Virginia G. Piper Early Education Campus in Phoenix, which provides a refuge each day for children ages 0-5 from low-income families to have access to critical early learning and basic needs.

Upon receiving the surprise grant, Torrie Taj, CEO, shared, “Virginia G. Piper was a loyal donor to our organization in her extraordinary life dating back to the 1970s. Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust continued her legacy at Child Crisis Arizona and we are humbled by this gift through the ‘Now is the Moment’ Grants Commemoration.”

Byron Sarhangian, Child Crisis Arizona board chair shared what a remarkable experience it was to be a part of this momentous day, “The impact of this level of giving will be felt for years to come. Hundreds of vulnerable people will benefit as a result of this ‘Now is the Moment’ grant.”

Thank you, Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, for continually inspiring the nonprofit community with your leadership and philanthropy.
