Valerie Wood, YCF Board Chair

Welcome to the Yavapai College Foundation!

Yavapai College Foundation is dedicated to seeking and assisting donors in helping students to achieve their dreams. There are a variety of donation options, such as individual donations, creating a scholarship in the donor’s name, creating an endowed scholarship, donations to a specific program, naming YCF as beneficiary in a will/trust/insurance policy, cash donations of stocks or planned-giving and more. I personally have sponsored scholarships with my husband Daniel as we believe in educational opportunities Yavapai College offers. Yavapai College Foundation also acts as a trustee for donations to assure the gifts are distributed in the manner specified by the donor. Please join us in helping educate and inform our Yavapai County community.

Sincerely,
Valerie L. Wood
President
Yavapai College Foundation Board of Directors
