Our Mission and Vision
Working together with individuals, organizations, and businesses in our community, we are able to help many students transform their lives through the power of a higher education and philanthropy.
The Polk State College Foundation, Inc. is a tax-exempt corporation whose purpose is to provide Polk State College with resources for the advancement of the College, its students, faculty, staff and other constituencies in fulfillment of the College’s mission.
The Polk State College Foundation works hand-in-hand with the College to help it meet its hallmarks and commitment to the community of access and affordability to higher education. Scholarships are a key way the Foundation accomplishes this and, as such, remains the Foundation’s number one fundraising priority. While the attached documentation details the exact cost of attending Polk State College, gifts at every level are appreciated and truly make a difference in the lives of Polk State students. Some students, indeed, need help paying for the majority of their tuition, while others simply need help with the cost of a book to be able to afford taking a class at Polk.
The Polk State College Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of community leaders, as well as a strong management team to ensure that your donation is wisely managed and leveraged to maximize the benefit to the students.
