Daytona State College Foundation

The Daytona State College Foundation, Inc., founded in 1974, exists to provide financial assistance to students and funding for critical needs that are beyond the scope of the College’s budget.

What We Do

A “direct support organization” of Daytona State College, as defined in Florida Statute 1004.7, is organized and operated exclusively to receive, hold, invest, and administer property and to make expenditures to, or for the benefit of, Daytona State College.

We are in the relationship business. Our goal is to assist anyone interested in investing in the lives of students by facilitating opportunities for investment, and to connect the College’s values and its merit with all who seek to learn and support Daytona State College.

Who We Serve

Offering more than 100 certificates, associate and bachelor's degree programs, Daytona State College has responded to the education and workforce training needs of Volusia and Flagler counties and beyond for 60 years. The college enrolls about 28,000 students a year at its seven instructional sites, with graduates serving in critical fields, including health care, emergency services, business, education, hospitality, engineering technology, computer science and more.

Our Leadership

Guided by a Board of Directors, the Foundation’s affairs are reviewed and governed by the College’s District Board of Trustees. An Executive Director, appointed by the Daytona State College President, serves as chief administrative officer.
