In 2002, the Alfred Street Baptist Church Foundation (ASBCF) was formed as a separate 501(c)(3) organization. Managed by a board of directors, the Foundation provides academic scholarships to graduating high school seniors, from the Washington, DC Metropolitan area, who have demonstrated a financial need and have maintained high academic performance. Additionally a limited number of scholarships are awarded to divinity school students.
In 2007 the Alfred Street Baptist Church (ASBC) Foundation awarded its first scholarships to eleven students from the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area attending a four-year college or university.
The Foundation has grown tremendously in every area: student applicants, number of donors, number of available scholarships and the scholarship amounts.
