(Pleasanton, CA)

Help Us Reach Our Goal

Why Elvis Fraser--Senior Program Officer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation--Gives to Ensaaf

I dedicate my time and resources to Ensaaf because any injustice targeting a group of people because of their race, religion, belief system, or life style goes against everything I believe and stand for. The history of discrimination and injustices perpetrated against people of African origins, my origin, has affected me personally and motivates me to do what I can during my lifetime to end or expose injustices of any kind.

Elvis Fraser has guided Ensaaf’s work by serving on its Board of Directors for several years.
