Faculty and Staff Giving

As a dedicated faculty or staff member, you strengthen Pensacola State College every day. That’s what makes your support to this college so special. It demonstrates your commitment to PSC and its strong future in the region.

PSC staff and faculty have donated nearly $100,000 since 2010 to the school.

With your help, we can continue to change lives in Northwest Florida. With your help, today’s students become tomorrow’s leaders, who will strengthen our communities near and far. With your help, PSC  is the exceptional place that it is.

Every gift matters to PSC. Please donate online or make your donation through a PSC payroll deduction: Payroll Deduction Form – 2015.

Endowment

Donors can provide much needed scholarship support through the establishment of endowments. Each endowed scholarship bears the name designated by the donor. Endowment funds are invested and managed, with interest and dividends used to perpetually fund the scholarship or program requested by the donor.

Whenever possible, state funds are secured to supplement or even match the donor’s contribution thus increasing the endowment. An endowment of $30,000 is needed to provide a full scholarship including tuition, fees and books. An endowment of $20,000 will fund a tuition-only scholarship and an endowment of $10,000 will fund a partial scholarship. When the state’s dollar-for-dollar matching funds are available, these endowment levels can be reached with gifts of $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000 respectively. For more information, contact the Foundation by phone at (850) 484-1560 or by email at foundation@pensacolastate.edu.

Commemorative/Memorial Scholarships

By creating a commemorative or memorial scholarship, you honor past achievements while paving the way for a new generation’s accomplishments. Many donors honor a loved one through the creation of a memorial scholarship into which family and friends may contribute. These pooled assets provide Pensacola State College Foundation scholarships based on financial need. For more information, contact the Foundation by phone at (850) 484-1560 or by email at foundation@pensacolastate.edu.

Special Grants

Special Grants for S.A.F.E. (Student Assistance Fund for Emergencies) may be established with a $2,000 minimum commitment. At the donor’s discretion, the grants can provide for short or long-term loans, textbook awards, transportation grants, childcare assistance or other special needs not usually covered by existing financial aid programs. For more information, contact the Foundation by phone at (850) 484-1560 or by email at foundation@pensacolastate.edu.

Scholarships

Pensacola State College is ranked in the top 1% in affordability by the Department of Education. However, accessibility to education and to federal funding can still remain a challenge for students. Donors to Pensacola State College continue to bridge this gap for our students with their support and/or creation of scholarships.
