Foundation of Westchester Clubmen

 
 In 1958 a group of African-American men in Westchester County, N.Y, collaborated to support each other through networking and social activities and sponsoring mentoring and scholarship programs for African-American young men. Thus began the Westchester Clubmen. Limited to only 30 members, the group includes senior executives of international corporations, entrepreneurs, physicians, attorneys, educators and other professionals. In the early 1990's, the Clubmen began to focus on providing disadvantaged African American male middle-school students in White Plains, N.Y. with the academic support and life-skills necessary to help them achieve their dreams. Since then, the Higher Aims program has expanded to White Plains High School and most recently to New Rochelle.  The Higher Aims Program is partially underwritten by the Clubmen’s personal annual contribution to the Foundation.
