Give the Gift of Scholarships

Expendable (Annual) Scholarships

Expendable scholarships are created when a donation is made on an annual or one-time basis. Typically the entire amount will be awarded in the year following the gift. Annual gifts to the scholarship will be necessary to continue supporting a student; often, donors will create an endowment to ensure the scholarship is perpetuated. Donors work with the staff to establish the criteria for awarding scholarships. Expendable scholarships:

  • Provide support to students for one academic year.
  • Allow a donor to make an immediate impact on the lives of our students.
  • Can be renewed each year by the donor, or through a gift sufficient enough to cover several years.

Endowed (Perpetual) Scholarships

Endowed scholarships are long-term perpetual funds that generate an annual income, a portion of which is awarded each year by the Foundation to deserving students.

  • The minimum investment for a named endowment is $10,000. Donors may take three to four years to endow their fund. Annual awards to students begin once the fund is fully endowed.
  • Once established, these scholarships exist in perpetuity to assist current and future generations of YC students.
  • Endowed scholarships provide a consistent flow of support to students and allows Yavapai College to plan into the future.
