Scholarships

 

Helping someone achieve their potential is an experience you will treasure for your lifetime. Providing much needed scholarships to deserving students is a wonderful expression of your philanthropy, and it’s because of the generosity of our donors that the Community Foundation is one of the largest providers of scholarship grants in Palm Beach and Martin counties. 

We have nearly 100 scholarship funds, established by donors who are committed to education, and often named in the memory of a loved one.  Together, we have awarded more than $9.3 million in scholarship grants since 1983, and helped 1,923 students fufill their college dreams.

I'm very thankful to the Community Foundation because they provided me with the tools I needed. They showed me that I can do it, and that anything is possible. Thanks to the donors at the Foundation, I can have an education and with this, I promise to make the world a better place." - Julian Acierno, 2016 scholarship recipient 


 
Consider establishing a scholarship fund…

…when you want to make a difference in the lives of others.
…because you see the potential in every student.
…because you understand a college degree increases lifetime earning potential by more than $1,000,000.
…because you share a belief that each student should have this opportunity regardless of their financial situation.

 

I was shocked to learn I won a scholarship from the Community Foundation. They believed in me and saw how passionate I was about becoming a teacher... and now I can pursue my dreams." - Bria Holmes, 2016 scholarship recipient
