A Message From The Chairman

I am honored and proud to serve as the Chairman of this fine organization.  Last year was a great year for us and this year looks to be even stronger.  We are continuing the incredible work we do in Mentoring, Health & Wellness, and Education; and we have an amazing roll-out planned in Economic Empowerment.  Additionally, we have exciting new internship and scholarship initiatives for our high school and college students.

Our Scholarship program awards over $50,000 in scholarships to deserving African-American college students each year; with a total of over $1.3 million awarded since our inception. This past year, we began another scholarship program that awards $5,000 annually to African-American high school students.  We are proud to be able to continue our commitment to this work in partnership with the giving and business communities.

The 100 Black Men of the Bay Area was founded on June 10, 1988, as the fifth National Chapter of the 100 Black Men of America.  We are committed to improving the quality of life for African-Americans in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Our Chapter includes over one hundred African-American men, who are established leaders in their chosen fields, including business, government, education, medicine, law, technology, marketing, real estate, and public affairs.  We are committed to using our talents to develop our youth and empower our community.

The 100 Black Men of the Bay Area takes our responsibility to our young people, and the economic empowerment and health & wellness of the African-American community, seriously. We achieve these goals through the following core “Four for the Future” programs, which are the foundation of our organization:
