Our Needs

As the challenges facing the Phillips Community College District become more complex, private giving will be the margin of excellence in the future, directly affecting the College’s ability to make a positive difference in relation to the needs of the people in Eastern Arkansas.

Phillips Community College is uniquely positioned to make a significant contribution to the economic, cultural and educa-tional development of Arkansas and Phillips Counties.  While the state recognizes the importance of the college and allocates funds for basic programs and services, PCCUA relies on private giving to maintain its academic excellence.  While state sup-port can only guarantee the College a basic level of service, planned giving to the PCCUA Foundation Fund can transform a good community college into a great one.  The College’s initiatives in funding academic scholarships, instructional equip-ment, carefully planned facilities, faculty development, and cultural arts depend on increasing the private support of those individuals in the private sector who share the College’s vision for excellence. The determination and selfless support by loyal PCCUA friends have been instrumental in building a proud legacy that helps achieve the College’s mission.

Anyone may support the Phillips Community College UA Foundation Fund in its effort to shape the college’s future through philanthropy.  Your gift is tax deductible.
