our mission 

 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.

Our support

The foundation provides 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.
