Earning a high school diploma and career certificate opens opportunities for a brighter future, a better job with higher pay, and overall happiness and stability. The Phoenix Public Library Foundation supports 75 scholarships to Career Online High School (COHS) each year to help adults who have dropped out of high school take the next step in their education; allowing more Arizonans to fulfill their true potential. By supporting College Depot at Phoenix Public Library, you provide valuable programs and services to the underserved, improve college attainment rates, help families break the cycle of poverty, and improve our local economy.

We encourage you to be part of the College Depot Scholarship Fund.

Help someone in our community achieve their academic dreams.

Because public funding provides for basic library operations, 100 percent of every dollar you donate goes directly to funding College Depot scholarships and providing educational opportunities for students in need. You can make a one-time contribution or schedule routine contributions (i.e. monthly, quarterly, etc.) through our website.

Thank you for considering making an investment in the lives of the students and families served by College Depot at Phoenix Public Library. Your funding will enable more people in our community to improve not only their own lives, but their family’s lives, as they strive toward better careers, higher education, and modeling values such as perseverance and love of learning for their children.
