Chipola Foundation

Founded in 1980, The Chipola College Foundation, Inc. was chartered as a non-profit organization for the purpose of raising funds to benefit Chipola College and its students.  Individual and corporate gifts can make a real difference in Chipola College and in the future of our community.

Donors may choose to give to the college in an area in which they have a particular interest, such as support of a specific scholarship fund or a professional or technical program.

Spring 2021 Book Vouchers

Chipola Foundation book vouchers will be available beginning Monday, January 4, 2021. After your registration for the Spring 2021 semester and you confirm that you will not be dropping or adding any classes and your registration is charged to your Chipola Foundation scholarship on MyChipola, if you have remaining scholarship dollars and want to use Foundation scholarship funds toward your Spring semester books, there will be three ways to request a Foundation book voucher.

1. To purchase books online through the Chipola College Barnes and Noble website to be shipped to you send an email to request an electronic book voucher to oliverg@chipola.edu. In the email, request that Foundation staff send a book voucher to the Chipola Bookstore electronically and give your name and Chipola student number. Staff will begin to send the electronic book vouchers on Monday, January 4 to Barnes and Noble. Vouchers will be available on the website to charge your books to the Foundation scholarship on Tuesday, January 5. Electronic book voucher requests that are received after January 4 will still be sent to the Bookstore; however, plan for a minimum of 24 hours lead time from the day you send the email request before the information will appear in the bookstore accounting system in order to purchase books on the website.

2. You may request an electronic book voucher per the instructions above and go to the Chipola Bookstore in person to purchase your books, but make sure to allow at least 24 hours from your email request for the book voucher amount to appear in the accounting system. The Chipola College Bookstore will be open for in-person service to purchase books; however a limited number of students will be admitted at a time.

3. Students may come in to the Chipola Foundation office one at a time beginning January 4 to receive a paper book voucher to take to the Chipola bookstore to purchase books on campus. The Chipola College Bookstore will be open for in-person service to purchase books; however, a limited number of students will be admitted at a time. The paper book voucher can only be used to purchase books in person at the campus bookstore. If you have questions regarding this process, you may email oliverg@chipola.edu or call the Foundation office at 850-718-2404. These instructions are as of October 20, 2020.  Should Chipola College‚Äôs operating procedures change by January 4, 2021, please check back here for any changes to the book voucher process.
