The FSW Foundation’s mission is to assist students in reaching their goals

Each year, the Florida SouthWestern State College Foundation provides about $2 million in student scholarships and investments in programs, technology and facilities – all to benefit the over 22,000 students we serve annually. We understand that if we provide a strong foundation, there’s nothing they can’t accomplish.

We are committed to continually improving the quality of education and opportunities for students at FSW – something that is possible thanks to your generous support. Follow the links on this page to learn more about ways to give and how you can make a difference in a student’s life.
