To address economic, educational, financial literacy, and youth development in our community. The Sam Stitt Foundation believes that it is our responsibility to address the current state of affairs that our young people are faced with.


The Scholarship fund empowers Johnson C. Smith University students to fulfill their ambitions in college. If you are a student at the University pursuing your degree in social work, The Sam Stitt Foundation can provide financial aid and coaching to assist you in your success in higher education.

About The Organization

On August 8, 2019, we received that phone call that no parent wants to receive. My wife and I were notified that our youngest son, Sam, had been shot and killed. The days following this horrible event, brought about a tremendous amount of heartache, grief, anger and confusion for my entire family.

As a father, I felt it was my responsibility to protect my children. The loss of Sam left me feeling like I had failed my child. I realized I had two choices; I could sit at home and be angry, or I could mobilize and do something to honor Sam. Out of this The Sam Stitt Foundation Inc. was formed.


Join us for events focused on positive youth development as we build our capacity to help youth thrive now more than ever before!
