About the Sponsor:

The Arizona Impact Fund was created by Sheila Schwartz, a Phoenix local with a heart of gold. She is a prominent leader in the Jewish community and has touched every Jewish organization in some way. Schwartz wanted to make an impact on the Valley’s Jewish community by bringing Arizona youth to Israel to strengthen their Jewish identity while developing a deep-rooted connection to Jewish life, to the Jewish people, and to Israel. Together with Eli and Lesley Hammer and Frank and Jennifer Schwartz, she is now able to make this dream a reality through the AMHSI Impact Fellowship Program. The Arizona Impact Fellowship was also made possible by a grant from The JNF Boruchin Israel Education and Advocacy Center.

 *Full tuition covered minus $350 deposit. All Impact Fellows are also required to fulfill a $1000 fundraising goal through JNF Plant Your Way
