Your contribution will help us continue the legacy of helping women achieve their goals and dreams.
The Education Foundation of the Florida Federation of Business & Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc. (Education Foundation of BPW/FL) was organized in 1965 as a 501(c)(3). Its purpose is to make available to women an opportunity to pursue higher learning.
The concept was originally realized by building scholarship houses for women on Florida state university campuses. Scholarship houses provide “a home away from home” for female students who have a demonstrated financial need and outstanding academic records.
We now also offer direct financial scholarships in addition to supporting the scholarship houses.
Please help us pay it forward by donating to our housing scholarship fund.
The second BPW/FL scholarship house was located on the campus of the University of Central Florida in Orlando. It housed 14 students and one resident advisor. It was dedicated in 1986 at a cost of $235,000. The 10year note was paid in full in just four years.
You can help support your Education Foundation’s effort to provide housing and scholarships to women seeking higher education with a new fundraising opportunity. Our sunbathing piggy bank t-shirt will jazz up your wardrobe. Proceeds will go to the Foundation, which supports our Scholarship Houses and provides direct scholarships to women around the state.
T-shirts are available in sizes from XS-2XL, starting at $25. Want more BPW schwag? See the other options for commemorative pins and thermal mugs! To see all items or to order your t-shirt please go to https://www.bpwfl.org/
