Mentor, Scholarship & Hope


Nassau County's Take Stock in Children is a not-for-profit organization funded by the public and private sector. Since 1997 we have helped 577 eligible low-income students who show exceptional academic promise and have the potential to become the future leaders of tomorrow. As one of 44 programs in this Florida initiative, Nassau County is one of the 17 other programs that hold a State TSIC Gold Standard Award. (check out our success stories...)


We Need Your Support...

Twenty-seven of Nassau County's promising young citizens will graduate this year and enter college next fall because of your generous gifts to Take Stock in Children's Scholarship Fund in the past.

This year we had 70 applicants but were only able to accept 22 new students due to the decline in scholarship gifts. Please help us Keep the Promise of scholarships, mentors and hope to more students.  (continue...)
