AHCCCS continuously seeks to develop educational partnerships with local colleges and universities to
support the educational pursuits and professional development needs of our employees. Currently,
AHCCCS has a unique partnership with Grand Canyon University (GCU) which offers AHCCCS employees a
generous 10% discount on tuition expenses. This partnership also provides a discount of 5% on
tuition expenses for dependents of AHCCCS employees. In addition to this, GCU regularly hosts
leadership development seminars and events with leaders of various profit and not-for-profit
organizations in which AHCCCS employees can attend at no cost.
AHCCCS’ Recognition Team (ART) coordinates two to three opportunities each year for the staff to
give back to those we serve. For the past five years one of the main events has been the annual water
drive for the homeless. The team has also hosted other various drives over the years for items such as
food, personal hygiene, toys and pet supplies at various times. Each event brings a renewed sense of
community and passion for those we serve.
SECC is a fundraising program established by the governor to help lesson the needs
of the community. The campaign is comprised of over 700 health and human service
organizations, and agencies that engage in environmental or historical preservation.
The campaign provides state employees an opportunity to make voluntary, tax-deductible
contributions. Each year, AHCCCS enthusiastically participates in this program, which
provides an opportunity for employees to donate to various charities of their choice
through payroll deductions. Donations are optional.
