Initiated in 2010, NOLIJ Foundation’s primary focus was centered around supporting minority students academically, advocating for communities and supporting the next generation of leaders.
In navigating these facets of empowerment, visions came to fruition in the form STEM and financial programs, charity runs, scholarships and Dream Walks.
Nolij Foundation Scholarships
The Wallace Campbell & Keenan Carter Scholarships operate under the Nolij Foundation with a vision of supporting minority students pursuing higher academia after high school. All recipients must be active in the community and excel in the classroom, retaining a minimum 3.0 GPA.

Nolij’s Dream Walk was organized with a vision. On the inaugural walk January 17, 2016, 700 participants ascended Stone Mountain and with Dr. Kings’s I have a dream speech faintly playing in the background several young adults proclaimed their aspirations for their future atop Stone Mountain all the while dispelling years of hatred that Stone Mountain has been associated with over the years.
