jerome burke foundation

Jerome Burke, was a son, a brother, an uncle, and a nephew, but never a father. Even though he did not have children of his own, he loved, mentored, and provided for so many children. In honor of him, the Jerome Burke Foundation was established to encourage and support higher education among young African American high school males and support other nonprofit organizations that contribute similar resources to African American males. The foundation will provide scholarships to graduating African American high school males who will attend accredited colleges, universities, or trade schools and provide a mentor to those seniors for their freshman year of college.
