At Florida College, we are committed to preparing students for better service to God and the world. Giving to the Adopt Program ensures that students receive the financial support they need to complete their degree at Florida College.

When you adopt a student, you are investing in a brighter future.

Adopt a Student

The James R. Cope Adopt Program

Welcome to the heart of generosity and impact! Many students aspire to pursue higher education, but financial constraints often act as roadblocks. The James R. Cope Adopt Program recognizes the importance of addressing these challenges, ensuring that no deserving student is left behind due to economic barriers.

When you donate to the Adopt Program, you can assist these students in their Florida College education, while having a personal connection to a student in the program. You will be matched with a current student and receive letters updating you on their progress and college experience. During the annual Bible Lecture series in February, you are invited to attend a reception where you will have the opportunity to connect with some of our Adopt students.

Your gift goes to students with financial need enrolled in this program. Each academic semester you will receive a letter from an Adopt student updating you on their school year. Some benefactors like to set up criteria for the type of student they would like to hear from (for example: a nursing student, soccer player, music major, etc.), which helps us match you with the right student and make the experience more personal. Other benefactors simply want to hear from any deserving student and look forward to getting to know more about a student through their letters. Either way, your generous contribution gives students an opportunity to attend Florida College, along with the knowledge that they are genuinely cared for and supported by a someone who wants to see them succeed.

The Adopt Program thrives on the generosity of donors who recognize the potential within each student. By addressing financial needs, you can empower students to overcome obstacles and pursue their academic dreams. Join us as we strive to educate the whole person to imitate Christ in service to God and the world. Together, we can make a difference, one student at a time.

My parents always told me, ‘Knowing who and what you stand for, limits what you fall for.’ I never quite understood it until I came to FC. I was trained and equipped in education. I became passionate about seeing children fulfill their kingdom destiny and educating them in the love and admonition of the Lord. FC taught me to stand wherever I was, even if I was standing alone.
