Giving to PVCC

Building Futures | Changing Lives  | Realizing Dreams

For the past 30 years, Paradise Valley Community College and the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation has raised more than $38 million and has provided in excess of $14 million in scholarships to more than 28,000 students pursuing a college education.

Many of these students were the first in their families to attend college. Others are working and taking care of families while continuing their education. Oftentimes it isn’t easy for these students to find the resources to help pay for college, and the scholarships they receive make a difference in their lives by helping them stay in school and reach their goals.

PVCC and the MCC Foundation are grateful to the many donors who support these scholarships and the students who receive them. These gifts change the lives our students by helping them build futures and realize their dreams.
