The EGC was established in 2013 to help raise funds in support of employee and student scholarships as part of the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation (MCCDF) and as part of Maricopa Gives-- a One Maricopa initiative that encourages employees to support students and college programs. The goal at Rio is to raise $15,000 toward scholarship funds. The MCCCDF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. A gift to the campaign is considered a tax-deductible donation in accordance with IRS regulations. The Employee Giving Campaign reinforces Rio’s commitment to the ideal of lifelong learning.
