The Ezekiel Taylor Scholarship Foundation (ETSF) is a 501(c)3 that provides mentorship, educational programming, and financial assistance to African-American males in the Chicago area who attend, or seek to attend, an accredited college, university or trade school. Named after the late Ezekiel Taylor, who was killed on the South Side of Chicago, the foundation identifies young Black men who have been impacted by Chicago's senseless gun violence. ETSF's mission is to educate, empower and encourage young men.
ETSF awarded 18 college scholarships in 2018. Each scholar receives a male mentor and access to life skills seminars. ETSF is inclusive to male students with a 2.5 GPA or higher. Our students attend colleges, universities all over the country. Together, with your financial contribution, we can impact more young lives, their families and our communities. We hope you will join our mission.
