Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

TMSF is the nation's only organization that provides merit scholarships, programmatic and capacity building support for Public Historically Black Public Colleges and Universities (HBCU). TMSF was founded to fill the void of support for students attending the Public HBCUs. TMSF member schools enroll more than 77% of all students attending HBCUs. TMSF operates on a 4.0% adminstrative cost.
The Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund (TMSF) was established in 1987 to carry on Justice Thurgood Marshall's legacy of equal access to higher education by supporting exceptional merit scholars attending America's Public Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The Office for the Advancement of Public Black Colleges (OAPBC) created TMSF with Justice Marshall's support. Today, 47 schools are members of the TMSF, including many of the nation's largest and most prestigious institutions of higher education. To date, the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $50 million in scholarships, capacity building and programmatic support. More than 200 Thurgood Marshall Scholars have graduated and are making valuable contributions to science, technology, government, human service, business, education and various communities thanks to the support they received from TMSF.
