When you give
to the Palm Beach State College Foundation, your gift extends far beyond the dollar amount you give; it builds momentum and grows exponentially.
A single scholarship can change an entire family's future.
Gifts can expand with matching funds from government and other grant organizations.
An endowment can create a new classroom, support faculty, launch a new program or even break ground on a new educational building.
Why does Palm Beach State College need a foundation? The College is tax-assisted, not tax supported. Funding from the state has declined from 71 percent of the College's annual budget to about 46 percent.
We seek private support to both maintain and grow the depth and breadth of education the College provides its students. The role of the Foundation is to develop relationships with community partners--individuals and businesses--who understand the value and contributions a college of this scope and purpose provides. We then utilize those gifts by linking contributions with the College's most pressing needs. Your tax-deductible contribution can provide:
Scholarships for students
Funding for new academic programs
Capital improvements for new and ongoing programs
Enhancement for the quality of education and student life at Palm Beach State College
To continue our mission we need your support. The Palm Beach State College Foundation can help with your commitment to the College. Explore our Web site to learn more about the Foundation, then call so we can discuss your contribution.

Palm Beach State College: A commitment to excellence
Florida's first public community college is now the largest institute of higher education in Palm Beach County, offering over 110 vocational programs, A.S./A.A. and Bachelor's degrees.
With four locations and more than 47,741 students annually, Palm Beach State College is the first step for more than 30 percent of the college-bound high school seniors in our county's public schools. We also build careers for many of the professionals in our community.
And that's just the beginning Palm Beach State is also a resource for continuing education, cultural arts, online learning programs and students who aspire to bachelor's degrees. Palm Beach State now offers the Bachelor of Applied Science degree (B.A.S.) in supervision and management, the first degree program of its kind in Palm Beach County.
Palm Beach State embodies the definition of a community-based college. It provides an affordable, quality education to local residents who, in turn, become vital members of the community, enhancing everyone's lives.
