Accounting firm Berkowitz Dick Pollack & Brant said its $50,000 contribution would help provide four-year college scholarships for 30 low-income at-risk children in Florida.

The $50,000 contribution received a six-fold match, for a total of $300,000, as part of a $10 million campaign by the Florida organization Take Stock in Children. The organization aims to fight high dropout and youth crime rates in the state by providing four-year college scholarships, mentoring and enrichment activities to students from 7th grade and up. So far, TSC has awarded more than $80 million in scholarships to Florida colleges.

BDPB is on TSC's state board as well as the organization's county boards in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach. The firm has also supported the United Way, the Boys & Girls Club, the Jewish Federation, the Museum of Discovery and Science, the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, Voices for Children and other organizations.
