The Pasco-Hernando Community College Foundation recently received $7,615 from the Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union (FCU) Foundation for the PHCC’s Take Stock In Children of Hernando County scholarship program.

The $7,615 donation to the PHCC Foundation, to be matched with funds contributed by the state of Florida, will provide three, full two-year scholarships to students enrolled in PHCC’s Take Stock In Children of Hernando County program. Take Stock in Children promotes personal growth, self-responsibility, and academic success for deserving low-income children by providing a set of resources including mentors, scholarships, long-term support, student advocacy, and educational opportunities.

The Suncoast Schools FCU Foundation is a vehicle for Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union to support the education, health and emotional well-being of children in the communities they serve through scholarships and contributions to K-12 public schools and other post-secondary education institutions.
