Thank you, donors!


Donor updateAfter filling the 2015-16 program cap of $447 million in just seven months, Step Up For Students is grateful to receive enthusiastic support toward the 2016-17 cap of $559 million. Many companies have reserved their 2016-17 tax credits. As of February 15, tax-credit reservations to Step Up For Students totaled $135 million. These commitments accentuate the corporate community’s desire to provide a personalized education to Florida’s underprivileged students.

It is with grateful appreciation that Step Up For Students recognizes corporations that have demonstrated a new or renewed commitment to Step Up. (Jan. 1 – Feb. 15):
