The Jireh Scholarship Foundation is organized as a public charity. It's primary purpose is to receive donations to administer funds to college students and graduating high school seniors in the form of scholarships for completion of their college education. Educational seminars will also be conducted to help facilitate a successful college matriculation.
The foundation was established to provide scholarships to African American college bound students to help assist in the completion of their college education. Given the current trends with financial assistance for a Bachelor degree, unless a student has parents who can pay for their education, it’s almost impossible for them to complete their undergraduate studies. We believe that if you can impact the life of one, you can indirectly transform the lives of many. Obtaining a college degree is one of the essentials in breaking the curse of poverty, setting new goals and standards, providing role models for future generations, establishing generational wealth, and positioning oneself for better opportunities and exposure.
The Jireh Scholarship Foundation recognizes that God is our source. Jesus Christ has provided us with everything we need pertaining to life and godliness. As He has richly blessed us, we in turn are used as his conduits to richly bless others. The foundation was birthed out of a meeting with three women of God of whom He had given the same burden to make a positive impact in our communities. His desire is that we extend to others the same opportunities we have been blessed to receive. Through the Jireh Scholarship Foundation, we desire to stress that giving is not just something good to do; but giving is something we are required to do! It is the will of God that we bless others as He has blessed us. There is no fear in giving when you recognize Him as your source. You understand that His supply is unlimited; He gives seed to the sower; and the more we give out, the more He restores so the river of life can continue to flow.

Secretary & Co-Founder
Darcelle’s interests in youth educational finance are rooted in the beginnings of her own college matriculation. As many African American students today, she shared the experience of working and borrowing loans to fund her college education. She believes that young people should be focused on achieving the purpose and plan God has for their life and shouldn't have to worry about educational expenses. During matriculation of her Master degree she was the recipient of the Gloria Anne Colquhoun Endowed Memorial Scholarship. Blessed and thankful, for the gifts she has received, it remains her commitment to assist young people to finance their education. Darcelle is committed to the success of Jireh Scholarship Foundation and the students it reaches!
