BLF Foundation

Every year, there are millions of college students that embark on a collegiate degree. Statistically, minority students struggle with retention at most colleges and unversities. The six year graduation rate for most minority students are at 43%. Being apart of this precentage is inclusion in a very small group who can accomplish graduation. Between 1995 and 2015, among blacks, the percentage with bachelor’s degrees has gone up by six only six points, from 15 to 21 percent, and for Hispanics it has risen seven points, from 9 to 16 percent.

BLF Foundation was founded to address the need for mentorship and scholarship of minority students. Through our Annual Richard Fontenot and Susan Moore-Fontenot Honorary Scholarship, we are able to assist with the many costs of attending college. To ensure that these students have the best guidance during their collegiate years, we pair them with mentors and perform professional development seminars monthly during the course of a calendar year in our Developing Future Leaders Mentorship Program to help them gain perspective and wisdom on how to navigate their undergraduate career and successfully master the corporate world.
