The Jerome Burke Foundation's mission is 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 provides scholarships to young 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. 

Our annual goal is to award five graduating African American high school male students with a $1,000 scholarship each.

GOAL: $5,000


The Jerome Burke Foundation has a Training Program dedicated to African American males. Our on-demand video courses will help them build skills in Business, Finance, IT, and other areas to learn the necessary to start a career in those fields.

GOAL: $10,000
