Christ Church Scholarship Commission

Our mission is to provide tuition scholarships to high character students assisting them in managing their cost of attending Florida’s state colleges and universities. Scholarships are funded independently of church support through annual events such as golf and tennis tournaments, the Patrons Party, Shared Treasure estate sales or individual donations.
