Endowments leave a legacy at Polk State College that will help students attain their dream of a college education in perpetuity. The principle of the endowment is wisely managed, while a portion of the return of investment – based upon the Foundation’s current spending policy — is utilized for scholarships, programs, technology and equipment. Endowments start at $25,000 and can be made payable over time. For more information on Annual Giving and Endowments, please contact the Foundation, at 863.297.1071
