Welcome to the Savannah 100 Foundation
The Savannah 100 Foundation is your foundation; committed to furthering educational opportunities for Savannah youth and the principle of using the law as a vehicle of social change by memorializing the legacy of the late Judge Eugene H. Gadsden and building a brighter future for all people of Savannah.
The Hon. Eugene H. Gadsden Scholarship memorializes the legal acumen and civic leadership of the late Judge Eugene Gadsden, Savannah’s first African-American jurist. Judge Gadsden’s leadership and legal expertise anchored Savannah’s civil rights movement. He served as Chatham County’s first African-American Superior Court judge, was a mentor to countless attorneys, and was in the forefront of the movement to make Savannah’s public facilities available to all of its residents.
The Gadsden scholarship aims to increase the pool of Savannah’s attorneys who are committed to the law as a vehicle of social change. It provides financial and mentoring support to promising high school and college students who have participated in the legal mentoring programs of the 100 Black Men of Savannah and intend to pursue a career in law
Organized in 2010 to enhance the mentoring programs of the 100 Black Men of Savannah and other emerging community-based mentoring organizations, we’ve partnered with generous individuals, attorneys, community leaders and people like you to improve the quality of life for of Savannah’s people.
We make it easy for people to make a difference now and for future generations. Join us in both furthering the education of Savannah’s young people and using the law as a vehicle of social change.
