The Pima Community College Foundation is responsible for managing the cultivation, solicitation, and the acknowledgement of charitable gifts for the benefit of the College.

The Pima Community College Foundation, a private nonprofit Arizona Corporation (Foundation) was established in 1977 to administer the College’s fundraising activities and to accept and manage all charitable gifts to the College.  The mission of the Foundation is to provide supplemental philanthropic support for student scholarships, programs, and services that advance the mission of the College.

The Executive Director of the Foundation is the Chief Development Officer.  In this Fundraising Regulation and Gift Policy, wherever “College” is used, it is intended to mean that support for the College is made through the Foundation.

The Foundation is responsible for the relationships the College maintains with its donors.  It is in the context of maintaining donor relationships that the Foundation has the authority to approve all fundraising activities undertaken by and on behalf of the College.  Final approval, on all matters pertaining to fundraising, remains with the Executive Director of the Foundation.

In its fundraising capacity, the Foundation may assign cultivation and solicitation activities to specific campus presidents, campus personnel, vice presidents and division deans while maintaining its coordinating and management function.
