Welcome to The James Curtis Harkness Foundation

The James "Curtis" Harkness Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 2014 by Elton Harkness in memory of Curtis Harkness and the ideals for which he stood. Curtis was a great humanitarian who devoted much of his life to public service, serving on several boards devoted to improving the lives of individuals from diverse populations.

In honor of Curtis' enduring commitment to expanding opportunities for students to attend college and his love of sports and other student activities as vehicles to promote personal development, the mission of the foundation is to improve the educational outcomes of youth and young adults from traditionally underserved populations through providing college scholarships, educational supplies and funding participation in programs that serve as a catalyst to enrich the educational experience, enhance economic competitiveness or promote personal development.
