The Community Foundation has awarded more than $11 million in scholarships since our inception, and helped thousands of students fulfill their college dreams.
Hear it from our scholarship recipients directly:
I’m so appreciative of scholarship donors at the Community Foundation. In spring 2019, I’ll graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree in health and human services; Master’s Degree in gerontology. I’ve also been accepted to medical school, which I plan to begin next fall. Through this scholarship, my dream of becoming a physician has been made more possible.”

Thanks to the generosity of the Foundation, I can continue my education at the University of Florida pursuing my passion for veterinary medicine. I cannot express how much help the Foundation has given me and it inspires me to push to achieve even more in my future endeavors.”
Ashley, South Fork High School
Since 2011, I did anything I could to contribute to my family's bills. Now, I work as a retail associate with my father and I run my own photography business to help my family. Thanks to the Community Foundation, I can pursue my goal to earn a Master’s Degree in International Business and work at a major global company.”
Ethan, Santaluces Community High School
I would like to thank the Community Foundation for your generosity in providing these scholarships. Words cannot begin to describe how much receiving these scholarships means to me and my family and how much it will impact my future. These scholarships will help cover the remaining cost I have for school so I can fully concentrate on my studies and pursue my desired career path which includes growing my online pastry business without having to worry about how me and my family will cover these costs. I am forever grateful to this organization in helping to make some of my biggest dreams come true."
