Fund-a-Scholar: Donate to benefit BSF Scholar Elijah Poole

Help me to provide a financial scholarship to a BSF Scholar

$2,364 towards $1,000

I'm fundraising to support BSF's Fund-a-Scholar Program!

I'm asking my friends, family, and professional colleagues to support Black Student Fund's social fundraising campaign Fund-a-Scholar.

For over 50 years, the BSF's comprehensive programs have helped underserved students achieve success at local independent schools. Through the Fund-a-Scholar program, BSF matches donors to BSF scholars for a social fundraising campaign. My BSF scholar is Elijah Poole and I'm asking for you to donate to our scholarship fund in Elijah's honor.

BSF Scholars and families have benefited tremendously from generous donations. These donations have helped create new programs like BSF STEM, provided over $60,000 in tuition assistance scholarships to Scholars in just two years, and helped 99% of BSF high school seniors successfully graduate and attend competitive colleges and universities. With the demand for our services higher than ever, donations to BSF will continue helping students gain educational access.

With your help we can ensure BSF Scholars receive the financial support needed to continue their independent school education and further develop their leadership skills. Only with the help of people like you can we make this a reality!
