About Us

The Arizona Western College Foundation is a community foundation committed to supporting AWC students, programs and AWC campuses by making education universally accessible though the removal of economic barriers with collaborative contributions, scholarships and grants. 

The AWC Foundation manages over 250 scholarship, program and capital funds for a wide variety of programmatic areas. At the Foundation we believe that obtaining a degree or certificate is a fundamental change maker for economic prosperity for the families in our community. This crucial work would not be possible without the generosity of our donors and community partners. We invite you to join our community partners and become a donor today! 

Our Events

Every year, the AWC Foundation organizes several events to fundraise and recognize our generous donors.
