Scholarship Program


The Reverend Donald L. Saffold, Sr.
Scholarship Fund

Our founder's father, Rev. Donald L. Saffold, Sr., believed that having access to continuing education opportunities is extremely important for Black youth. 


Rev. Saffold led a life of service to his community, and considered it an honor to serve God's people in various ways. He passed away in November 2020, but his legacy lives on through his children, and through those that he inspired during his life.
