The Bertram Leonard Ashe Educational Foundation was created by Dr. Bertram L. Ashe, a life long educator. The Mission of the Bertram L. Ashe Educational Foundation is to provide tools, programs, and services for under-served African American students to successfully complete post-secondary education.”
The fall fundraising campaign will kickoff with a private donor fundraising event which will include a presentation of an award to the foundation’s 2018 scholarship recipient.
