With over $90,000 raised for charities, The Giving Tree Dispensary is has been involved in a number of campaigns to help give back to their community, including hosting a barbecue dinner and t-shirt tie-dye event for victims of domestic violence and fundraising for the Pat Tillman Foundation.
For 2020, they plan to fundraise and be involved with this year’s National Brain Tumor Society’s Phoenix Brain Tumor Walk.
“We have a personal stake in the walk this year,” says Lilach Mazor Power, founder and CEO of The Giving Tree. “Close friends of ours lost their 11-year-old son Parker to brain cancer in August this year. We’ve named ourselves Team Parker in his honor. We’ll strive to achieve our fundraising goal of $10,000 with the help of our employees, partners and patients.”
The Giving Tree Dispensary opened its doors in 2013 in North Phoenix. Lilach got to know the area and really liked it. She believes educating customers and the community about cannabis and the different ways it can be used is a top priority for her company.
“We’re driven to educate residents about cannabis and we love to meet our neighbors,” says Lilach. “We want to be a good, stable influence in our community. We definitely want to be a store where everyone from seniors to young adults feel welcome.”
When it comes to education, she says her dispensary’s staff is very knowledgeable and happy to take the time to answer questions from customers. They’ve offered education at different community events and meetups when safe to do so under COVID-19 safety protocols.

Why Invest in the National Brain Tumor Society
It takes the combined knowledge, expertise and dedication of many individuals and organizations to fight brain tumors and develop new treatments. This includes academic researchers, clinicians (neuro-oncologists, neuro-radiologists, neurosurgeons, etc.), biopharmaceutical companies, patients, survivors, caregivers, philanthropists, policy makers and regulators. When you give to one medical institution, you are helping just that one organization’s efforts. But, when you give to NBTS, you are investing in the combined power of the entire brain tumor community. Funding will go to many organizations and research efforts, giving brain tumor patients the best chance for better treatments.
This multi-pronged, community-based approach will help find treatments faster while promoting better information sharing and collaboration between experts around the world to find a cure for brain tumors. Only NBTS can convene these various forces through our programs and mission agenda in order to create rapid progress toward a cure.
