“The Fund Finder for Education,” Crystal Goliday, founded a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Never Underestimate Knowledge (NUK), providing educational, financial, and social resources to inner city youth and domestic violence survivors.

“I started my careers as a Computer Engineer and worked my way up to the Executive level in the corporate world, being the only woman and black woman at the table. I am doing my part to motivate and encourage my community to pursue their dreams.”–Crystal Goliday, Founder and Executive Director
According to the 2021 article, Women Making Gains in STEM Occupations but Still Underrepresented , the United States Census Bureau reports, “Women are nearly half of the U.S. Workforce but only 27% of STEM Workers. Women made gains – from 8% of STEM workers in 1970 to 27% in 2019 – but men still dominate the field. Men made up 52% of all U.S. workers but 73% of all STEM workers.” Crystal Goliday and Never Underestimate Knowledge will continue to do their part to empower and provide resources.
To date, Never Underestimate Knowledge has successfully awarded THE RHM SCHOLARSHIP to five deserving high school and college students in 2020, which is a scholarship in honor of the late Mother of the NUK Founder and Executive Director, Crystal Goliday. The goal is to award a total of 10 scholarships in 2021, which will happen with the help of the community.
