Dear Supporters of the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation:

The health of our community, students and employees is of the utmost importance to the Maricopa County Community Colleges District and to the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation. Therefore, after careful consideration over heightened concerns of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Heroes of Education Recognition Dinner, originally scheduled for April 8, 2020.

We appreciate our sponsor’s dedication to higher education and thank them for their support of Heroes of Education.

Your trust is an integral part of our mission and as the Foundation continues to work in support of student success, in light of the challenges we all face in regards to COVID-19,  I’d like to take this opportunity to encourage donors who are making gifts to the Foundation to utilize credit cards or electronic fund transfers, directly from their banking institutions. Simply visit You may also wish to visit to learn how your support of Emergency Funds can help students all across our District during this difficult time as we know this situation will have an adverse effect for many of our students in pursuit of their education.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate these unprecedented times together. These steps that we are taking are just one small measure, to ensure that our mutual commitment to accessible and affordable higher education, continues effortlessly.
