Make a Gift to PBSC

Because of you – friends, individual donors, community partners, longtime patrons – the Foundation for Palm Beach State has provided students with academic and professional paths, bringing an annual $1.1 billion economic impact on Palm Beach County. 



Choose Your Impact:


The power to transform lives is the heart of our mission

Scholarships change students' futures for themselves, their families and our community. 

First Generation in College (FGIC) Scholarships
FGIC Scholarships fund support those students who demonstrate financial need and whose parents have not earned a baccalaureate degree. Your contribution to a FGIC Scholarship is matched dollar for dollar (100%) by the state, doubling the impact of your gift. 

Annual Scholarships ($2,500+)
Annual Scholarships provided immediate benefit for students. A five-year commitment is all it takes to establish a naming scholarship in your name or someone else's honor.

Endowed Scholarships ($25,000+)
A long-term scholarship plan, your Endowed Scholarship is invested into a growth fund, its interest used to fund scholarships. A minimum dollar amount is required.
