Thank You To Our Partners!

HBCU #EAHomecoming Giving Campaign


100% of our goal has been met. Consider donating today to help! 

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) were chartered to educate students of color in a time of segregation and discrimination.  They have definitely played an essential role in transforming the landscape of higher education in the United States.  Today, in the era of rapid transformation, HBCUs are facing challenges and new obstacles.  


Now, more than ever before, we must #standwithourHBCUs.  Join us as we take on the challenges that threaten to shutter our vital intuitions of higher learning. We have so many exciting opportunities for you to get involved….here are a few!  


  1. Get on the Honor Roll, make the Homecoming Court, or reach for Coachella levels by pledging your support of our HBCU #EAHOMECOMING Giving Campaign.

  2. Bolster recruitment and retention at our HBCUs by partnering with community organizations to host college readiness workshops and HBCU campus visits/tours.  We are counting on you to #StandWithOurHBCUs!

  3. Gather friends and family and plan to support our inaugural AAA – Arts Appreciation and Awareness event.  Proceeds shall benefit arts programming, our partner schools in West Africa, and the fourteen (14) HBCUs located in the Eastern Area from Pennsylvania to Virginia.
