The Montclair African-American Heritage Foundation serves as an outreach to broaden minds and spirits, preserve history and culture, and to recognize and promote cultural resources as an essential element of Montclair's economic and social well-being.
The Montclair African-American Heritage Foundation (MAAHF) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization supported by a diverse committee of volunteers who have affection for the Montclair, N. J. community. Our volunteers live both in and outside of Montclair.
The goal of MAAHF is to sponsor educational events and activities to promote community building and fostering of good neighbors. There are concerns about issues affecting the African-American community, especially the youth, in Montclair. The complexions of many neighborhoods have significantly changed over the years and with these changes, a lot of history has been lost. Our programs will be intended to influence how the Montclair community experiences the local African-American heritage, culture, and concerns.
The mission of MAAHF is to build upon the rich African-American cultural legacy through support of quality local programs funded through grass roots organized events. Providing quality historical, health, and cultural education within interactive forum settings will in turn strengthen our community as a whole. Additionally, through individual, corporate and business support, we provide recurring scholastic scholarships and foster opportunities to create model programs which encourage harmonious living.
