Take Stock in Children

Take Stock in Children

Now, more than ever, we must take stock in our children

Since 1997, Take Stock in Children Pasco County has been with the Pasco Education Foundation and partnered with Pasco County Schools to provide a unique opportunity for deserving low-income youth/students, many from minority families, to escape the cycle of poverty through education. We offer our students college scholarships, caring volunteer mentors, and hope for a better life. Our comprehensive services start in middle school, continue through high school, and include their transition into college.

Help us change the lives of deserving students

Donor contributions are matched dollar-for-dollar by the Florida Prepaid Foundation. That means that every contribution, no matter the size, will be doubled in value. Currently, the cost of a full 4-year scholarship is $9,000, which will be fully matched to fund one deserving student’s college education.

Providing necessary college tuition funds is just one way the program promotes student success. Take Stock in Children also offers mentors who inspire and guide young minds along with school-based ambassadors who keep track of student progress and enhance learning through enrichment activities.
