The PUHS Alumni Scholarship Endowment Fund
The endowment has one purpose; to continue the Phoenix Union High School Alumni Association (PUHSAA) scholarship program after those who attended PUHS are no longer available to administer the program. In other words. thanks to the ACF, the program is set up to work in perpetuity.
The Arizona Community Foundation (ACF) is managing the endowment fund, and when needed, will begin administering the scholarship program. The scholarship endowment fund goal is $350,000. This number will ensures there is adequate income each year to pay the amount awarded to the students, and fund administrative costs. We were able to start the endowment with the $110,000 the PUHSAA had in the PUHSAA administrated fund.

It is mailed out to approximately 4,000 + PUHS Alumni. members 4 times a year.
