Endowed Gifts

Endowed gifts are forever funds. An individual, family or community group can create an endowment with Pima Foundation.

Contribute To An Endowment

Pima Foundation’s goal is a balanced portfolio for optimal return and a stable source of long-term funding. An annually determined percentage of a fund’s market value (“Spending Policy”) is paid out to support the designated purpose. After the distribution of the annual management fees, the remaining balance is reinvested to allow the endowment to grow over time.

Your support keeps students thriving. Thank you for your generosity.

Donations to Pima Foundation may be tax-deductible. Please consult your tax advisor for more details.

Pima Foundation and the American Association of University Women (AAUW) have a long relationship through the establishment of the Joyce Strothmann Scholarships and the Marilyn Eddington Endowment with Pima Foundation. AAUW is a national organization whose mission is to advance equity for women and girls through research, education and by advocacy. AAUW’s Northwest Tucson affiliate strives to fulfill this mission by providing scholarships for women returning to Pima Community College to further or update their education. Pima Foundation has delivered the funds our members have raised for this purpose.  AAUW NW Tucson is appreciative of its partnership with Pima Community College Foundation.” —Ann Ellsworth, Scholarship Chair, AAUW Northwest Tucson
