Pictured above is Rio Salado Faculty Chair for Reading Rosslyn Knight proudly holding a check for $1,800, which will benefit the Maricopa Colleges Faculty Foundation.

Knight, along with other Rio Salado faculty and administrators helped to raise the money during a recent holiday party by raffling gift items.

In addition to granting scholarships, the Foundation provides just-in-time funds to help students avoid having to drop out of school as a result of unforeseen financial emergencies. Foundation dollars are also helping students pay for bus passes, baby food, rent, car repairs and other daily expenses.

You can make a difference too. Donate Now.

The Maricopa Colleges Faculty Foundation is a 501(c)5 voluntary labor organization composed of current and retired residential faculty from the ten Maricopa Colleges.
