Pima Foundation Receives $110,000 Gift From the Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce Foundation

TUCSON, AZ - The Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce Foundation has donated $110,000 to Pima Foundation to help support students attending Pima Community College. A check presentation will be made on Wednesday, January 24, 2024, at 11:30 a.m., at Pima Community College’s Northwest Campus, Community Room A207.

The newly formed scholarship will be known as the Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce Foundation Endowment in honor of Marilyn and Al Cook and is designed to help up to 5 students annually with a $1,500 scholarship. 

“Pima Foundation is extremely grateful for the opportunity to award scholarships from the newly established Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce Foundation Endowment,” said Marcy Euler, President and CEO, Pima Community College Foundation Inc. “This important partnership and, because the fund is endowed, the legacy of Marilyn and Al Cook will live on in perpetuity to support deserving students pursuing their educational and career goals.”

The scholarships provide funds to cover any educational expenses a student may encounter at PCC, such as housing, books, transportation and child care.  PCC students who apply for the scholarship must write a short essay explaining why they need financial help. They also must be enrolled in at least six credit hours in any program of study at PCC.

“Our board is genuinely excited and honored to have this opportunity to help young Pima students achieve their educational goals for years and decades to come,” said Dave Perry, Chair,  Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “We know Marilyn and Al wanted to help young people find their way.”
