The need is financial

The Harambee Scholarship Fund provides tuition assistance to low-income families so that their children can receive a quality education in a Christ-centered, nurturing environment.  Full year tuition at Harambee for one student costs $6,000, annually.  Many students attend on a partial scholarship provided by an Ohio EdChoice Voucher.   Urban Concern raises the difference through personal, church, and corporate support.   (See pie graph below.)

The Annual Fund supports the program and operating budget for the ministry of Urban Concern, including the Youth Ministries.

Urban Concern stewards each and every gift with integrity in order to maximize impact in our students’ lives. Gifts of all sizes help the gospel take root in our students’ lives.
