Community involvement and volunteerism are integral components of the culture within The Ogunyemi Family Foundation, Inc. Our volunteer activities make a huge impact in the community, while boosting morale, improving communication, and strengthening the team.
The Ogunyemi Family members are deeply rooted in their respective communities across the United States. They believe in a service-first approach and constantly exhibit selfless acts to build their communities.
The Ogunyemi Family believes that no voice is louder than the next, and we value different opinions and perspectives. We bring diverse perspectives to the same table. By listening to & learning from various experiences, we can reach a shared understanding and create innovative solutions that achieve true impact.
Unfortunately, factors outside of anyone’s control make it hard for some people to reach their potential: things like when they were born, who their parents are, where they grew up, etc. We have committed to using our resources to create a world with a level playing field for every child.
Wisdom Strength & Endurance Scholarship
The Ogunyemi Family Foundation, Inc. established the Wisdom, Strength, and Endurance Scholarship to provide underrepresented minority students the opportunity to pursue higher education by alleviating and/or eliminating the financial barriers to the student’s success. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 69.7% of 2016 high school graduates had enrolled in college by October 2016. The college enrollment rates of African Americans and Hispanic/Latinos during 2016 was 58.2% and 72% respectively. Lower income students can only afford to attend roughly 3% of colleges in the U.S. without a loan. The scholarship seeks to award students who have triumphed in the face of of adversity, not allowing circumstances to separate them from achieving their dreams.
