Our Legacy

The Legacy of Leadership program was created by Creme of Nature in 2020 to assist HBCU students with the critical funding support they need to nurture and develop their personal legacy brands, as well as to support the company’s ongoing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion that’s specific to HBCUs.

Our Commitment

In 2020, Creme of Nature announced the launch of its multi-tiered Legacy of Leadership program – kicking off with its initial $100,000 scholarship fund for HBCU students. This was followed by a Pitch Competition where HBCU students used their entrepreneurial skills to compete for $30,000 in scholarship funding, plus other enriching opportunities.

Creme of Nature is proud to continue on our Legacy of Leadership commitment for a 3rd year with another $100,000 scholarship initiative! Supporters, parents, and students are encouraged to follow Creme of Nature on social media for news and updates about this program.
