One of the major fundraising purposes of BPW/Jupiter is to contribute funds and support to the Scholarship Houses located at:
Often scholarship money covers tuition and books but the housing expense is the biggest dollar issue for students. These cooperative houses offer that support that can make the difference in whether the student can take advantage of the other scholarships.
These houses have been built and maintained almost entirely through the fundraising efforts of BPW members in Florida. This project is unique to Florida and a wonderful example of how we assist women in furthering their educations. More information on the houses and applications can be found at www.EducationFoundationBPWFL.org.
The scholarship houses are more than just homes. Scholarship houses serve as cooperative facilities where young women further their educational goals, share leadership experiences, life skills development and family community.
The Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization under section 501 (3) (c) of the Internal Revenue code so all donations are tax deductible.
Florida Atlantic University House
The mission of the Education Foundation of the Florida Federation of Business & Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc. is to build at least one scholarship house on the campus of every state university in Florida to provide housing for female college students. Since 1965, the Foundation has built three houses with funds raised almost exclusively within the BPW membership. St. Petersburg will be the next!
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR CONTINUING SUPPORT!
