The primary mission of The Sachs Foundation is to provide educational opportunities to Black and African American residents of Colorado who meet certain academic and financial criteria.
The Sachs Foundation was first envisioned in 1927 when Henry Sachs promised family friend Effie Stroud, the top student at Colorado Springs High School, that he would pay for her to attend Colorado College. It was incorporated upon Ms Stroud's graduation in 1931 and has since supported over 5,000 students in pursuit of their education.
We currently support 182 undergraduate students and 15 graduate students at 67 colleges and universities around the country and abroad. We also provide pre-collegiate programs and community assistance in the Pikes Peak region.
