We offer a number of giving options to those who would like to ensure the long term success of midwifery in Florida and the sustainability of the Florida School of Traditional Midwifery. As a 501 (c)(3) all gifts are tax deductible.
Most of our students obtain Title IV funding to attend school and while this covers most educational expenses it does not usually cover all the expense associated with attending clinics, births, driving to and from FSTM, childcare, etc.
To help with those expenses we have set up the following:
- Support a Student Midwife Fund
- Wollheim Devine Memorial Fund
- General FSTM Fund Donation
Support a Student Midwife
With your personalized sponsorship you can ensure that a Student Midwife, of your choice, attending the Direct Entry Midwifery Program at The Florida School of Traditional Midwifery will be able to offset their tuition fees, book fees, travel expenses, and more!
The Florida School of Traditional Midwifery is only 1 of 9 nationally accredited Direct Entry Midwifery Schools in the United States, and the only nationally accredited Direct Entry Midwifery School in the Southeast.
Student Midwives commute from all over Florida to attend The Florida School of Traditional Midwifery, from as far away as Ft. Lauderdale!
Because of raising costs of living and Federal Financial Aid’s increased interest rates, there is a gap into which some of our students fall. By sponsoring a Student Midwife you can help to offset this gap and help them complete their education!
There are multiple Sponsorship Packages available! Included in all packages is a Thank You Letter from the Student Midwife that you will be sponsoring:
- For $2 a day you can sponsor a Student Midwife’s travel expenses.
- For $5 a day you can sponsor a Student Midwife’s food expenses.
- For $10 a day you can sponsor a Student Midwife’s books and fees.
- For $20 a day you can sponsor half of a Student Midwife’s tuition.
- For $40 a day you can sponsor a Student Midwife’s full tuition!
*You can become a Gold Sponsor for $50 a day to provide full tuition and book fees for a Student Midwife!*
**Platinum Sponsorship Packages include the Student Midwife’s cost of living, tuition, and books and fees for $75 a day**
All Sponsorship Packages are fully Tax Deductible because we are a Non Profit 501(c)3 School!
Wollheim Devine Memorial Fund
Jennifer Wollheim Devine was a dynamic, energetic, and nurturing woman who had a deep calling to become a midwife and realized her dream when she attended and graduated from the Florida School of Traditional Midwifery.
Jennifer shared enormous gifts with our community by being employed as a Licensed Midwife at the Birth Center of Gainesville and working as an instructor and Clinical Director at the school.
Sadly, Jennifer passed away over six years ago but her deep desire and commitment to offer women and families the right to choose how and where they birth is being honored by her family and friends through the Wollheim Devine Memorial Fund. This fund has been established to assist the education of midwifery students. It will provide emergency funds for students struggling along their journey to help them fulfill their dreams and aspirations.
