Giving Tuesday – Meet Samantha Santiago


Meet Samantha Santiago; a Polk State College student with an inspirational story! For years, Samantha longed for a college education. Yet, as a single parent, raising four children, she struggled to balance her family responsibilities, work, college, and finances.

The goal of Polk State College Foundation is to provide a scholarship for each student who needs one to graduate. It is our generous philanthropic donors-who believe in and support this goal-that make it possible for the Foundation to assist students like Samantha. Your donation will help provide a hand up to students experiencing an emergency life circumstance and help them attain their goal of a college degree.

Polk State College Foundation appreciates the #givingtuesday movement for the positive impact it makes around the globe. We invite you to help students like Samantha on #givingtuesday; whether you choose to donate online or by mail, gifts of all amounts are encouraged and greatly appreciated!

Consider the Polk State College Foundation in your year-end giving, or donate year-round to help students succeed.
