Invest in Florida's Future


By 2030, 80% of Florida’s 100 fastest-growing jobs will require postsecondary study. Take Stock helps students enter and complete college while also improving the future of Florida’s communities and economy. When you support Take Stock in Children, you are not only fighting the college completion crisis and directly impacting the lives of students in need, you are investing in Florida’s future.

Take Stock is one of the nation’s most well-established public-private partnerships. The state of Florida matches every private dollar raised by Take Stock in Children for scholarship purchases 1:1, so every $1 you invest becomes $2 in scholarship funding. The Take Stock organization has successfully graduated 37,000 students and invested $250,000,000 in scholarships in our students.

One investment today in Take Stock’s mentoring, college readiness, postsecondary completion, and scholarship program can bring us one step closer to ending poverty and changing a child’s life tomorrow.

Thank You for your support!

Your donation will make an impact to help end generational poverty.
