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.

Young adults who face an opportunity gap but have a mentor are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor. This National Mentoring Month, help Take Stock to raise $10,000 in support of our 10,000 mentors across the state of Florida. Our mentors are there for the Big and Small moments in their mentee's life. From helping them with study tips, to high school graduation, to starting their journey in college. Take Stock provides mentors with monthly training and support to ensure they have the tools they need to help their students succeed in college, career, and life. No donation is too big or too small.
