Welcome to the St. Johns River State College Foundation.

The mission of the Foundation is to support the growth and development of SJR State in whatever ways are beneficial to its students, faculty, staff and campus facilities. We fulfill this mission by actively encouraging private gifts from individuals, alumni, businesses, associations and service organizations.

Founded in 1970, the Foundation continues to build relationships within our community—connecting a desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others through learning and cultural enrichment with giving opportunities at SJR State. The Foundation sincerely appreciates the support of its donors who not only impact today's students, but also help ensure that SJR State will be here for generations to come.

During a time of economic uncertainty, the Foundation must assume a major role in meeting the needs of SJR State and its students. The commitment of our donors takes on a greater role of importance than ever before if SJR State is to continue to be a comprehensive college in Clay, Putnam and St. Johns counties. We encourage you to browse our Web pages and see for yourself how you can personally make a difference... today!

Thank you for your support.
