Chancellor’s Circle

The Chancellor’s Circle recognizes gifts to Pima of $1,000 or more.  These gifts support the most pressing needs of the College as identified by the Chancellor.


Gifts of any amount are welcomed to help support the College; all gifts that come to us without a specific designation are used as most urgently needed at the time the gift is received; examples include providing scholarships, supporting specific College programs, or establishing new workforce development courses.


Scholarship gifts are always welcomed and help ensure that deserving students from throughout our community – often the first in their families to seek higher education –  are able to achieve their educational goals.


Gifts to the Foundation’s endowment are invested and remain in the endowment “corpus” forever, generating ongoing earnings to support the College and its programs.  Some specific endowment funds have been established to support scholarships or specific programs within the College; your gift may be designated to any of those specific scholarship funds.


Every Pima program can use additional funds, which are then used to purchase supplies and materials, support program development or professional faculty training, or other expenditures necessary to maintain a quality experience for students.


Intercollegiate sports programs are vital to the College experience, and Pima offers both women’s and men’s teams. Gifts may be designated for the general Athletics Fund or a particular sport.
