Cash contributions

Cash Gifts

Cash gifts (cash, check, money order, or online giving) are often given by SPC alumni, faculty & staff, friends, and community partners to help fund scholarships and student-focused programs that promote student success, economic mobility, and community engagement. You can choose to make a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift to give monthly, quarterly, or annually.

Cash gifts can be given toward our Titan Fund or one of our specific designated funds, including the SPC Scholarship Fund, Student Emergency Fund, Women on the Way Program Fund, and the College of Nursing Excellence Fund.

The Titan Fund gifts are unrestricted, which gives SPC the flexibility to quickly allocate support where the need is greatest. The Titan Fund is used to sustain academic programs, scholarships, innovative programming, student support services, and every other aspect of the College.

Planned Giving - The Helen Leslie Legacy Society

The St. Petersburg College Foundation established the Helen Leslie Legacy Society to recognize alumni and friends who provide visionary support to the college through their estate plan. Helen Leslie was an SPC alumna and combined her education, passion, and talent to make a significant impact in our community. She was a huge champion for SPC throughout her career, both financially and through volunteer service. Like Helen Leslie, members of the Helen Leslie Legacy Society serve as a model for others considering financial commitments to the Foundation and College. Membership in this distinguished Society is offered to individuals who have designated and notified the college of a planned gift to the St. Petersburg College Foundation.

If you have already made provisions to support the St. Petersburg College Foundation in your will or living trust, we thank you and encourage you to notify us of your intent and become a member of the SPC Foundation Legacy Society today and for perpetuity.

To learn how your planned gift can meet your financial objectives while supporting the work of the College and the aspirations of students, contact Erin McKenney at mckenney.erin@spcollege.edu or call 727-341-3335.
