About Us

Creighton Community Foundation was established to support Creighton School District #14 and the communities within its east central Phoenix boundaries. We labor to bring resources to bear upon life needs and whole person development of people and children within some of the poorest neighborhoods in urban Phoenix. We're in the business of building partnerships that will transform collections of houses into vibrant neighborhoods of hope and opportunity. The resources we bring into a neighborhood start with 1 person - yes, 1 person - a catalyst who serves the sole purpose of connecting and working bring other partners into more effective work among the lives of that neighborhood.

We are faith-based and faith-partnered in many of our pursuits, and while seeking to engage in achieving better developmental outcomes for children, we seek to bring people into deeper relationships with our communities, and in turn bring resources and opportunities throughout our neighborhoods. Key partners in this work are churches and para-church organizations with hearts for the poor and disadvantaged, as well as our entire community of civic organizations and businesses around Phoenix, Arizona.

Of course we're more than one person, and the team behind Creighton Community Foundation is behind hundreds of points of community attack, monthly service and community events, school social work and youth leadership programs, after school programs, and thousands of after school dinner meals served to community youth.

Our staff members and leadership currently represent accomplished educators, business entrepreneurs, Rotary International and Kiwani leaders, lay pastors, medical directors, Young Life leaders, and others. Our partners and network of supporting organizations include these organizations as well as Habitat for Humanity, Hope Women's Center, Neighborhood Ministries, the Lodestar Non-Profit Institute and many other local non-profits and churches, various colleges in Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, Grand Canyon University, Post University Mountain Park Health Clinic, Phoenix Children's Hospital, several Maricopa County Hospital and Family Services groups, the Search Institute, and various others. It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a broad community of city-wide partnerships to transform a community.

Spurred on by generous funding from Arizona Community Foundation in 2016, we launched into our radical agenda of embedding neighborhood catalysts in individual school neighborhoods to live in situ and work relationally among our poorest neighborhoods to bring the resources of our networked partners to bear.

Our leadership currently includes a Board of Directors and a Board of Advisors, including Jeff Boles (Executive Chairman), David Zook, Sean Hannafin, Tim Hakim, Dr. Donna Lewis, Dr. Sue Pedersen, Jay Mann, Thierry Zerbib, Dr. Cady Berkel, Dr. Kristen Ferguson, Dr. Gene Roehlkepartain, and Dr. David Simpson.
