About the EFSC Foundation
At the Eastern Florida State College Foundation, we make opportunity happen.
The Foundation is the vehicle through which individuals, corporations, and other supporters contribute to the College's educational programs and student scholarships. Catch up on our latest news in our Foundation Connections magazine.
Eastern Florida State College is committed to providing the best educational foundation for students as they prepare for their life experiences beyond graduation.
For that reason, EFSC Foundation must continuously raise private funds to support these priorities that are essential for the success of EFSC:
- Expand and improve academic programs
- Increase the number of student scholarships and faculty chairs
- Add critical facilities and equipment
We're proud of the EFSC Foundation's more than 40 years of financial support for the students of EFSC, and we're passionately working to ensure that our future impact is equally significant. We've provided more than $2.5 million dollars in scholarships over the last five years, with every dollar benefiting the students we serve.

Paying it Forward
As the first in her family to pursue a higher education degree, Dawn Niehoff relied on a special scholarship designed just for that type of student.
She had no idea her Eastern Florida State College journey would lead her back to the College as the event coordinator for the EFSC Foundation. She knows first hand the difference that every donation and every fundraiser makes.
Established in 1971, the Eastern Florida State College Foundation is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation chartered to provide financial support for student scholarships and educational programs that cannot be met through state aid or student tuition. The Foundation is managed by a voluntary Board of Directors of business and civic leaders from the 72-mile-long county served by EFSC.
The Eastern Florida State College Foundation, Inc. funds are kept separate from, and are managed by, Eastern Florida State College. Endowed funds are invested in partnership with, and are managed by, Glover Orndorf & Flanagan Wealth Management. The Foundation is audited annually by Carr, Riggs, & Ingram, LLC.
