September Check Presentation

Thursday, September 29, 2016

At the September District Board of Trustees meeting, the Polk State College Foundation was presented with a $250,000 donation from the Harvey T. Hall, Jr. Fund within the GiveWell Community Foundation. GiveWell is a reputable, efficient nonprofit organization where donors invest charitable dollars that grow to do tremendous good in our community- this gift is a prime example. This endowed gift will allow Polk State to provide emergency scholarships to students who face unexpected financial hardships. Rather than worrying about unforeseen expenses, emergency scholarship recipients will be able to remain focused on their top priority: completing their education to provide better lives for themselves and their families.

Harvey T. Hall, Jr. left an inspiring legacy that will benefit Polk State students in perpetuity.  Thank you Mr. Hall and the GiveWell Community Foundation for making a tremendous impact on the lives of Polk State College students.
