Welcome to the Sachs Foundation


African American Scholarships in Colorado

Welcome to The Sachs Foundation website. Our primary mission is to provide college scholarships to Black/African-American residents of Colorado who meet certain academic and financial criteria.

Our scholars include approximately 150 students each year who are currently in attendance in roughly 80 different educational institutions throughout the United States.

The Sachs Foundation was created by Mr. Henry Sachs and incorporated as a Colorado, non-profit corporation in 1931 with the assistance of Mr. Morris A. Esmiol and Mr. Ben Wendelken.

In its 82 year history, the Sachs Foundation has helped over 8,000 Black/African-American Colorado residents obtain a college education. .

We encourage you to view the short video located in our About Us page to find out more about Mr. Sachs and his vision.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions!
