Back to School

DCBF congratulates our 2018-2019 Scholars. Wishing them and all students a safe and productive school year.


For (10) years The Darin C. Banks Foundation, (DCBF), has advocated for youth education and empowerment. DCBF has awarded over a dozen college scholarships, mentored hundreds of young people, cultivated relationships with high schools, universities, other non-profits and corporations across the United States. 

We believe in today's youth and tomorrow's leaders.

"I feel the Foundation has values and goals similar to mine. I know that I will be able to help contribute to Mr. Banks' legacy." -

“Each year we’re amazed by the caliber of the student applicants. This year was no exception, even with a record number of applicants. We take great pride in carefully selecting students who are academically fit, socially conscious and compassionate and determined to be successful.” - DCBF Scholarship Committee Member

What our volunteers are saying

I'm so glad I served as a volunteer for the DCBF Scholarship Competition.  Hearing the students discuss their academic careers and professional aspirations was really refreshing.
