Pasco-Hernando State College (PHSC) Foundation received a $7,100 gift from the Suncoast Credit Union Foundation (SCUF). Additional funds matched by Florida Pre-Paid, will combine with the SCUF gift to provide two, full two-year scholarships for students enrolled in PHSC’s Take Stock in Children Program of Hernando County. To date, Suncoast Credit Union Foundation has given nearly $25,000 to support the program.
The Suncoast Credit Union Foundation is a vehicle for Suncoast Credit Union to support the education, health and emotional well-being of children in the communities it serves through scholarships and contributions to K-12 public schools and other post-secondary education institutions.
Take Stock in Children was established as a non-profit organization in Florida that provides a unique opportunity for deserving low-income youth/students, many from minority families, to escape the cycle of poverty through education. It offers students college scholarships, caring volunteer mentors and hope for a better life.
