Imagine a Community of Hope Campaign


Our campaign goal is $5M - $3.4M to build the Center for Hope, Humanity and Holocaust Education and $1.6 million for endowment funds to support on-going operations, programs and facilities.

The purpose and mission of this campaign is to build a center that will be an inclusive and collaborative space to inspire new ideas, encourage open dialogue and promote hope, human dignity and respect. Using world, national and local history and the lessons of the Holocaust as the core focus of exhibitions and programming, the center will be a place where people of all backgrounds, faiths and cultures are engaged, educated and empowered


Why Now? 

Phoenix is the fifth largest city in the United States, yet it is one of the only major cities that does not have a Holocaust museum or education center. With anti-Semitic and hate crimes on the rise over the last five years in Arizona and the United States, now is the time to build a new center to raise awareness and educate the community so that we can help to address these critical issues.

With a long-established history, strong leadership, a location in the heart of downtown Phoenix’s arts and culture district and over 10,000 visitors each year, the Arizona Jewish Historical Society (AZJHS) is poised to undertake this project.

The impact of the new Center for Hope, Humanity and Holocaust Education will be felt in many ways and in many areas. The center, when completed, will act as an anchor and centerpiece of a unique downtown arts and culture district, will contribute to the positive economic growth of the city and most importantly, will be a critical educational and cultural resource for students, teachers, adults and the community at large.
