WHO WE ARE: Our mission is to
Strengthen our Community by Investing in Student Success

The Phoenix Union Foundation for Education is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity (#86-0523265) that supports PXU’s mission of “Preparing Every Student for Success in College, Career and Life.”  The Foundation was founded in 1984 to enhance cooperation and collaboration between the Phoenix business community and PXU.

  • Award scholarships to students pursuing post-secondary education.
  • Encourage creative learning opportunities that support the mission of the District and the Foundation.
