Mission Statement

The E.R. Nunn Scholarship Fund, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation formed in January of 1995, award grants to students who best exemplify the positive characteristics championed by mentor Edward Raymond Nunn (1910 - 1993), a heroic classroom teacher. Named in honor of this beloved Birmingham educator, this scholarship recognizes the sound ideals emphasized by Nunn. "Fess," as Nunn was known affectionately to students and faculty at Minor High School, encouraged students to value community involvement and philanthropy as well as academic subjects like science and mathematics. He encouraged students to achieve in spite of overwhelming obstacles. During his long tenure in the classroom, Mr. Nunn emphasized the importance of science and mathematics, inspiring many students to pursue careers in medicine, engineering and education. Mr. Nunn believed in achievement in spite of overwhelming social and economic obstacles. The Powderly Community Redevelopment Committee is the major fund-raising component of the E.R. Nunn Scholarship Fund, Inc. Through the sale of new, affordable, quality single-family homes constructed on selected lots in the Powderly Neighborhood of Birmingham, one of the city s oldest, the revitalization and restoration of the community loved by Mr. Nunn, will happen. From the proceeds, the Committee will fund academic scholarships to selected students. These students, who may not otherwise get the chance, will be able to attend any of our nation s universities, colleges or military service academies.

Program 1

The Powderly Community Redevelopment Committee, under the E.R. Nunn Scholarship Fund, Inc. oversees the primary programs and projects of the organization. Those programs include the development and quality construction of affordable single family housing in the local area. Already underway, a Land Bank of ten (10) neighborhood lots has been targeted, researched and are being acquired. Two area builders have been selected and have submitted home construction plans and suggested lot layouts. Available regional bank financing is being actively pursued and appears highly achievable. Cooperative agreements are also being established with a local college, area organizations, community churches and an independent proposal writer to pursue various funding, including advertised Housing and Urban Development (HUD) project assistance. Detailed Project Budgets and Schedules are being developed with key financing milestones and interfaces identified. These documents and others can be provided to interested parties as required. The Committee is providing managerial and administrative oversight for the project.
