An Education Trust for Arizona

Helping Arizonan Students Reach Their Full Potential

The Dougherty Foundation is a private foundation that awards college scholarships to Arizona students. In 1954 the foundation was born out of our founders’ desire to support continuing education and a brighter future for all of Arizona.

Today, we carry on with their mission by working with community donors and partner colleges that share our vision to provide much needed financial aid to help students reach their full potential.

As we move forward, Dougherty is now offering match dollars to community members awarding scholarships and scholarship administration services. We offer this support to the community for free as an extention of our committment to serving more Arizona students.
