More than 64% of the students enrolled at The State College of Florida rely on financial aid to achieve their dreams. Approximately 50% of student aid consists of student loans. Although SCF is undoubtedly one of the best educational values in town, the Foundation’s endowment isn’t large enough to provide all deserving students with scholarships. Private contributions from generous friends, corporations and businesses have provided all of the Foundation’s scholarships at SCF. But it’s not enough. Each year, we continue to turn away deserving students who demonstrate financial need because we simply don’t have enough scholarship money to meet the demand. An initial investment of $25,000, payable over five years, will establish a named, endowed scholarship. The principal is not invaded, and the income will contribute to the success of deserving students in perpetuity.


The Foundation operates from offices in Bradenton and Venice, Florida on the campuses of The State College of Florida. Our professional staff is available to work with you and your tax advisor to help you meet your philanthropic goals.
