Student-paid tuition and fees only cover a small portion of the actual cost PSC incurs to educate a student. In fact, PSC is state-assisted rather than state-supported. Although state support is critically important, it only serves as a portion of the College’s total operating budget.
Did you know?
Annually, donors who contribute to the Fund for Excellence meet the College’s most pressing unfunded needs.
Our most pressing unfunded needs often relate to students.
- Scholarships requiring matching gifts have often come from donations made to the Fund for Excellence. First Generation matching dollars help PSC secure $2 from the State for every $1 in private (2018-2020 match rate)- donations the College must raise locally.
- Scholarship recipients are at times given the opportunity to meet with PSC benefactors. We pay for these opportunities through Fund for Excellence.
The “Fund for Excellence” is a donor-supported advancement fund that PSC relies upon to seize opportunities for growth and expansion. These unrestricted funds allow the Foundation the flexibility to meet greatest needs FIRST!
