An Education Trust for Arizona

Helping Arizonan Students Reach Their Full Potential

The Dougherty Foundation is a private foundation that awards college scholarships to deserving Arizonan students. Over 65 years ago, 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.
