With the support of Doral Mayor and Council, the Parks & Police 4 Kids (PP4k) Foundation has donated $35,000 to Florida International University (FIU) for its First Generation Scholarship Program. City leadership, board members and CRF President Dr. Ken A. Jessell gathered for a special presentation to commemorate the partnership in the Doral Council Chambers on October 26.

The First Generation Scholarship Program is an innovative matching scholarship program that is awarded to students whose parents or legal guardians did not earn a bachelor’s degree. Every dollar donated to the program by a nonprofit 501(c)3 charity or incorporated organization will be matched by the state with $2. PP4K is a City of Doral 501(c)(3) foundation whose mission is to empower young people to reach their full potential by building healthy relationships and preparing them with the tools to face and overcome challenges.

“This is an exciting collaboration that will have a direct impact on degree-seeking undergraduate students who live in Doral,” said Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez. “Through partnerships like this, our city is able to put the youth of our community first and help provide opportunities for our bright leaders of tomorrow.

“Given the city’s proximity to our main campus, the many students, faculty, staff and alumni who call Doral home, and this city’s footprint in the business community, this partnership is critical to ensuring success. of our students and our community. This is why we are so grateful for the generosity of the City of Doral and their partnership with the CRF First Generation Scholarship Program. With this donation from the city, the CRF can match the 2×1 contribution, thereby securing a scholarship fund of $105,000.
