IRSC Employee Appeal

Employee Support

Message from the President


Dear IRSC Family,

Indian River State College takes a lot of pride in our steadfast commitment to providing students with the best possible educational environment.  This is a significant reason for our selection as a winner of the 2019 Aspen Prize, and it’s a central tenet of our mission at IRSC. One way we’ve created ideal learning environments is by building exceptional educational facilities, equipped with the technology and tools to prepare our students for the 21st Century workforce.  

In the coming year, we plan to begin construction of the Treasure Coast Advanced Manufacturing Center on the main campus.  While the State of Florida has provided some funding for this state-of-the-art training hub, we need your help to add enhancements that will make the finished building meet or exceed the standards of excellence at IRSC.

This year, we are asking each employee to consider giving $5 or more each pay period to raise a minimum of $100,000 to support the Advanced Manufacturing Center.

Gifts of $5,000 and more to the Advanced Manufacturing Center may be pledged for up to five years and every gift will be recognized with a listing on the Wall of Honor.

Even a few dollars per pay period can quickly add up and make a difference toward this priority.

Gift per pay period                    Annual Gift

$5                                                 $120

$10                                               $240

$20                                               $480

$50                                               $1,200

If you prefer, you may also designate your gift to another critical student success initiative, educational facility, or scholarship fund.  Your support at any level is greatly appreciated and will be recognized on the Foundation’s Annual Honor Roll.

As always, thank you for your dedication and ongoing commitment to IRSC and student success.


Edwin R. Massey, Ph.D.
