Transforming Lives, One Brick at a Time

Friday, August 31, 2012

Join us as we pave the way to an everlasting legacy of giving to talented and deserving Polk State College students!  Helping students to shine is our passion at the Polk State College Foundation, and you can be part of the excitement of seeing student potential be fulfilled by donating to secure a commemorative brick or paver that will be displayed on campus, a permanent testament to your generosity! Proceeds will fund initiatives for scholarships, innovative academic programs and more. Read here to discover how to create the path to making dreams of a higher education come true!

Help pave the pathway for the next 33,000…and beyond!

More than 33,000 alumni recognize the vital role Polk State College played in their ultimate success. Many of those alumni, as well as current students, credit scholarships for giving them the financial resources to attain their higher education goals.

Every day, talented and deserving students take a first step toward a new life by entering Polk State College. Many of these students could not pursue their dreams without the generosity of people like you.

As student enrollment has increased exponentially in recent years, state funding has decreased. In order to meet the growing needs of students and the community, the College and its Foundation work tirelessly to attain their ultimate goal – to have a scholarship for every student who needs one to be able to attend Polk.

Paths for success are built brick by brick, which is the impetus for the Polk State College Foundation making an important appeal to you through the Pave the Pathway to Success Program. Your donation to reserve a commemorative brick or paver will help Polk State students attain their dreams of earning a college degree, and will support the institution that is offering excellent higher educational opportunities right here in Polk County. Your contribution is also a tangible way to leave a lasting impression and celebrate your success at the College, honor a loved one in a meaningful way, or promote your company.

Proceeds from the Pave the Pathway to Success program will help fund initiatives such as:

• Foundation scholarships for deserving Polk State College students

• Innovative academic and student-enrichment programs

• Emergency assistance

• Classroom enhancements and facility improvements

• The Collegiate High Schools on the Winter Haven and Lakeland campuses

Donate today! And leave an enduring mark of generosity. Please don’t delay, limited quantities are available.
