Annual gifts can allow donors at every level to have an immediate impact, as funds are typically used in the same year in which they are received.

Gifts or pledges in the form of cash, check, or money order can also be sent to: Prescott College Office for Institutional Advancement, 220 Grove Avenue, Prescott, AZ 86301.

The endowment is Prescott College’s foundation for future growth.

Unlike other gifts, which are spent relatively soon after receipt, gifts for the endowment are invested and the principal is held in perpetuity. Find out more about endowments.
