The Florida College System Foundation was established in 1994. Its mission is to promote Florida’s Colleges to be the nation’s leading advocate for postsecondary educational opportunity, access, and student success while respecting and protecting the autonomy and local support of the individual colleges.
It is the policy of the board of Directors that we recruit gifts and donations from national and statewide groups. The Florida College System Foundation will coordinate and communicate closely with Florida’s 28 college foundations to eliminate any potential for conflict or competition.
