Mission

Indian River State College Foundation, Inc. is a Florida corporation not for profit, organized and operated exclusively to receive, hold, invest and administer property, and to make expenditures to, or for the benefit of, Indian River State College. To accomplish this, the Foundation actively supports the long-range plan of Indian River State College by providing, but not limited to, scholarships, high-technology equipment, faculty chairs, support of capital projects, and improvements to further enhance student accessibility and improve the learning environment at IRSC.

Creating the Future Today

Indian River State College provides a wealth of educational opportunities to students whose professional and career goals are as diverse as the Treasure Coast. From accounting to zoology, fire science to electronics, IRSC provides today's students with the education, tools, training, and experience they'll need to excel tomorrow.

Since 1965, the Indian River State College Foundation has been enhancing access and quality of education for IRSC students. Its focus is to attract and manage private contributions from individuals, organizations, businesses, and private foundations to support IRSC's mission. Managed by a voluntary Board of Directors of business and civic leaders from all four counties served by IRSC, the Foundation is a private non-profit entity recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and by the State of Florida as a direct support organization for the benefit of IRSC. As a partner in building a better community, the IRSC Foundation promotes higher education with student scholarships, support of instructional programs, technology grants, and new and improved facilities.
