Mission Statement

The Craig D. Butler (CDB) Scholarship Foundation was established to memorialize Craig D. Butler and deserving seniors in the inner city. CDB Scholarships’ mission is to provide financial assistance to African Americans in pursuit of higher education in the aftermath of gun violence. Our cardinal principle is ensuring that African Americans from underserved populations are not economically disadvantaged enough to receive a quality education.


The Craig D. Butler Scholarship Foundation was established in January 2020 to honor my father Craig D. Butler, for whom the scholarship is named, and to continue his legacy of integrity, generosity and service after he was shot and murdered at the hands of a 14-year-old male in 1999. We award (2) $1,000 scholarships annually to African American high school seniors attending Philly high schools. In addition to the scholarship, the CDB Foundation also rallies for education advocacy for minority students.
