Agricultural Scholarship Endowment
In 2005 the Prescott Farmers Market relocated from downtown Prescott to the parking lot of Yavapai College. The Board at that time recognized the importance of this new partnership and wanted to make a lasting impact in our community. Instead of simply paying rent to Yavapai College for the use of its facilities, PFM requested and was given the opportunity to invest those fees into an endowment through the Yavapai College Foundation.
In 2015 the fund became fully endowed at nearly $12,000. In 2016 Prescott Farmers Market’s endowment began providing an annual scholarship of $500 to students pursuing education in agriculture at Yavapai College. The Prescott Farmers Market Board of Directors is proud to support students of all ages and backgrounds in learning agricultural skills and is grateful that Yavapai College has various programs that support agricultural entrepreneurs.
