Foundation & Alumni

Who We Are

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

What We Do

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.

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.
