Mission, Vision, and Values
We instill hope, raise aspirations, and improve life trajectories of African Americans and people of color.
The Bridge Builders Foundation seeks to remove the barriers of race, poverty, ignorance, and despair through mentoring, educational support, health care awareness, and community uplift.
We envision a world where all youth, regardless of circumstance, can realize the fullness of their potential. A world in which healthcare and treatment are equally distributed. A world of inclusion where all benefit from the bountiful resources America has to offer.
We have a responsibility to our children to encourage constructive pursuits and provide them with every opportunity to succeed. We invest in underserved youth to create a better life for all of us. Through positive citizenship, exemplary behavior, and civic responsibility we place scholarship, perseverance, and uplift at the forefront of everything that we do to increase the likelihood of successful outcomes.

Support the Salute Scholars Program
College Scholarships to allow our students to thrive with financial support and mentorship.
Our goal is to maximize college graduation rates for African American males, which is a problem. To date over $800,000 in scholarships has been awarded. With your support we’re able to annually give 100 students the financial resources to attend college, and provide individual mentorship, coaching, tutoring, and referral support to aid in their academic and professional success.
