The Jerome Burke Foundation offers scholarships to African American high school males. In 2019, we awarded scholarships to five African Americans in the Chicago land area.

We plan two major fundraiser events to achieve our goals.

We have passionate, skilled, and intelligent individuals on our board that help with the planning of these events.

The Foundation have provided scholarships to five African American students. Our next goal is to assign five qualifying African American males to mentor the recipients throughout their college term.

The Foundation next goal is to provide computer training, financial and mental workshops, and culture activities, such as, spanish classes and photographer classes.
