“As we celebrate our 35th annual gala, it’s important to reflect on the profound impact we’ve had on so many lives starting with our charter year in 1988, when 13 high minded, distinguished Black gentlemen created a bold vision for the future and founded our beloved chapter … to today when we’ve achieved record levels of impact for the community. We couldn’t have done it without the generosity of our sponsors, donors and community partners.” Chuck Baker, Chairman of the Board, 100 Black Men of the Bay Area, Inc.

The Bay Area Chapter of 100 Black Men was officially recognized as the fifth National Chapter on June 10, 1988.

In 1992, 100 Black Men of the Bay Area established the Young Black Scholar Program and hosted the first statewide Young Black Scholars Conference in June 1993.  The Young Black Scholar Program continues to be the cornerstone of the Chapter’s Role Modeling, Mentoring, Scholarship, and Fundraising endeavors.

Each year, scholarship awards and financial assistance is given to students throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Awards are given out each year at our Annual Scholarship Reception which takes place in July and our Annual Scholarship Benefit & Awards Gala which happens in December.
