What does it mean to be a man—not just legally, but ethically, morally, emotionally, and spiritually? How does a young person today come of age in our fast-paced, info-overloaded, materialistic, and highly technical American culture? And most important, what role do adults play in helping boys assume the mantle of manhood?



The Elliott-Chandler Foundation seeks to provide critical assistance and support to young men who are demonstrating a desire to excel in the area of academics and pursue a degree from a higher learning institution with ultimate hopes of becoming a leader of tomorrow.

The Elliott-Chandler Foundation, Inc. strives to achieve this through two paths:

1) Financial assistance through scholarships

2) Support through a mentoring program. Truly, financial assistance is paramount in this endeavor, but without the solid foundation of mentorship and guidance, positive change and effectual vision cannot take place.

The Elliott-Chandler Foundation is committed to: 
developing a society of educated young men prepared to be future leaders in various areas of expertise;
enhancing moral and ethical values of young men though mentoring; and
providing financial assistance to young men interested in becoming successful college graduates.
