The Nate Tait Educational Scholarship Fund was developed by The E.R.A.C.E. Foundation specifically for non-profit educational organizations throughout America working to significantly bring together races in their local communities. Our goal is to identify, assist and promote these schools because of their commitment to the cause of racial reconciliation. Assistance may be provided in the form of school grants or individual student scholarships. ERACE is currently sponsoring a student through a scholarship opportunity at New Hope Academy elementary school in Franklin, Tennessee.

The Nate Tait Educational Scholarship Fund was established in memory of the late Pastor Nathel Tait, father of dc Talk's Michael Tait. Growing up in the heart of Alabama, Nate Tait was a first-hand witness to racial discrimination in all shapes and sizes. His great-grandfather was even killed by the Ku Klux Klan. But Nate was known for his love of people, and throughout his lifetime he opened his home to people of all races and nationalities. You can see a clip of Nate Tait on our video page.

New Hope Academy is an independent non-profit elementary school based in Franklin, Tennessee. The school first opened its doors to its first students in September of 1996, servicing families from both the lower income and middle class local communities. With a set ratio of students from varied economic and ethnic backgrounds, New Hope Academy is committed to an enrollment that is economically, racially, and culturally diverse. Forty to fifty percent of the students come from low-income families. New Hope has intentionally created a culturally diverse student and faculty population, which in turn impacts the community at large with a message of true racial reconciliation. Additionally, New Hope Academy has one of the most unique and comprehensive academic programs in the state of Tennessee.
