Since 1967, the Gulf Coast State College Foundation has supported Gulf Coast State College’s strategic initiatives via funding for student scholarships and programs. This could not be possible without the continued investment from our community.

It is the mission of the Foundation to provide much needed financial resources to help offset the cost of education for  individuals seeking to expand their horizons through higher education. Our donors help ease the pressure placed on our students and advance the future through the promise of education.

Scholarships celebrate academic excellence while assisting those students for whom financial support is a necessity.  The Foundation is proud to be able to help over 700 Gulf Coast State College students each year with financial support.  The Foundation also provides program funding that helps the Gulf Coast State College faculty and staff succeed in providing first class instruction and guidance.

Gulf Coast State College is one of the region’s greatest assets and the Foundation is confident that with all of us working together, we will continue to provide a quality education to all who deserve it. Thank you for taking an active role in contributing to this exceptional community resource.
