Scholarships and Endowed Chairs

Noted theologian Lawrence G. Lovasik once said, “A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.” Our foundation and students benefit from the kindness of philanthropic individuals, corporations and organizations that are deeply rooted in our community.

Please consider a gift to support scholarships for students in need. Of the top five reasons students cite for dropping out of college, four are financial. This makes Valencia Foundation’s work building scholarships especially urgent. Because many of our students are working a full-time job or several part-time jobs - as well as balancing family, community, volunteer and personal commitments - scholarships make a tremendous difference in their ability to attend college.

Your tax-deductible gift can make a significant difference in the ability of our students to succeed. Valencia Foundation offers several gifting options to promote higher education and workforce development in Central Florida.

If you would like more information on student scholarships, academic programs or creating a legacy planned gift please contact the foundation at 407-582-3150.
