What Is The Tuskegee Airmen Scholarship Foundation?
In order to continue to preserve the Tuskegee Airmen legacy, the "Tuskegee Airmen Scholarship Foundation" (TASF) was established in 1979 to serve as a vehicle to provide annual scholarships to outstanding young people in their academic quest for excellence. With an initial goal of one million dollars, seed money came from pledges, contributions, and the proceeds of a Memorial Banquet honoring General Daniel "Chappie" James Jr. The goal was achieved in 1997 and in 2007 the fund balance reached $2,000,000.00.
TASF is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization located in Los Angeles, California. The Board of Directors is comprised of Documented Original Tuskegee Airmen (DOTAs) and corporate and community leaders committed to providing leadership by ensuring that funds are available to assist financially disadvantaged and deserving students in the pursuit of their educational goals, preferably leading to careers in the fields of aviation, aerospace and science technology.
