Nov 01, 2007

FORT LAUDERDALE—Fort Lauderdale attorney Fred Karlinsky, a 1992 graduate of the Florida State University College of Law, has increased his original commitment to the Karlinsky Family Scholarship by $75,000, bringing his total gift to the endowment to $100,000.

This gift will be eligible for a 50 percent match from the state of Florida. The $50,000 state match will be added to the permanent endowment, creating a total endowment of $150,000. The income generated by the endowment will be used to recruit top students to Florida State.

“We are all very grateful for Fred’s generous support of the law school,” said Dean Don Weidner. “This endowment will help us attract and support superb students.”

“My family and I are fortunate to have experienced many opportunities throughout our lives, and it is important for us to share these gifts with others,” Karlinsky said.

Karlinsky is a partner in the Fort Lauderdale firm of Colodny, Fass, Talenfeld, Karlinsky & Abate, P.A., and has an insurance regulatory and governmental consulting practice.
