Take Stock in Children of Palm Beach County has failed to comply with the Florida Solicitation of Contributions Act. That law regulates solicitation of public contributions and requires full disclosure of certain information from organizations soliciting contributions in Florida. Take Stock in Children of Palm Beach County -- legally known as COLLEGE FOR KIDS INC. -- has violated the Florida Solicitation of Contributions Act by allowing Registration Number CH24332 to expire 11/20/2009 and by failing to disclose information as required by that act. Take Stock in Children of Palm Beach County has a history of serious problems. You should carefully watch Take Stock in Children of Palm Beach County.

Take stock in children is a wonderful program, I am blessed to have been given this scholarship. The staff is kind and helps with any problems we have. They also give some wonderful mentors to the students!

Take Stock In Children is an excellent program. It gives children the opportunity to go to college where otherwise they may not get the chance. It also helps the community get involved with their mentoring program. Take Stock In Children brings hope to a child.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting to meet new people, learning so much about scholarships and being a part of a child's life in a positive way.
