Our Quest for Student Success
The Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation is embarking on a comprehensive campaign to ensure that students have the resources they need to succeed. Our goal is to raise $50 million over four years to support student success in the following 3 thematic areas:
- $25 million to fund scholarships that will directly support student success.
- $15 million in support for faculty and staff innovation, creativity, and excellence to develop new programs, initiatives and methodologies to enhance student success.
- $10 million to support community partnerships that expand opportunity for students.
These three themes have been identified as the most direct way to secure the future on the Maricopa Community Colleges and its students. As public funding for higher education wanes, it’s more important than ever to invest in tomorrow’s leaders. There have been a variety of projects developed, associated with each theme, that are critical to ensuring a robust economy and community where people want to live and work. Get more information about these themes, the various projects and how to invest in them.To ensure that we are contributing to providing a low-cost, high-quality education, each of the 10 Maricopa Community Colleges has identified projects as well to expand the access to – and quality of – a college education and to increase the opportunity for students to graduate. These projects range from building endowed scholarships to establishing an automotive center for excellence to enhancing performing arts center programming just to name a few.
