Pathways to Success - In celebration of our military veterans for their service to our nation, the State College of Florida and the Foundation are committed to supporting our veterans’ transition back to non-military life by helping them earn a college degree. The Foundation is raising funds to help provide these veterans with scholarships and emergency assistance in the form of loans to bridge the gap in VA benefit payment. Click here for more information.

The Foundation operates from offices in Bradenton and Venice, Florida on the campuses of College of Florida. Our professional staff is available to work with you and your tax advisor to help you meet your philanthropic goals.

On July 1, 2009 the name of The Foundation for Manatee Community College, Inc. changed to State College of Florida Foundation, Inc. in conjunction with the change of the name of the College to State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota.
