Friends and supporters are invited to provide their support to the HBCU Campaign Fund (HCF) in raising the necessary funds to further its continued mission supporting students and higher education by making a gift on #GivingTuesday, November 29. Gifts donated during HCF’s #GivingTuesday campaign will be used where needed most in support of students attending HBCUs and higher education, specifically Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Predominately Black Institutions (PBIs).
HCF is pleased to join in Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses individuals, communities, and organizations’ collective power to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity worldwide. The organization’s set fundraising goal is $25,000.
“HCF continues to grow and strengthen its advocacy mission to support students and higher education. Our organization works tirelessly, and we will continue to be among the leading orgs that inspire and transform the HBCU and PBI community and assist those students in need to achieve their educational aspirations successfully,” said HCF Founder, President & CEO Demetrius Johnson, Jr. “With our supporters’ help, the fight to Campaign For HBCUs will continue and ensure that HCF can complete its vital assignment that is very much understood. Our organization stands aside HBCUs and MSIs and supports their needs in providing quality education to many students from various backgrounds. Our fundraising goal will provide the leverage needed for our organization to strengthen our philanthropy abilities to overcome and continue supporting students and higher ed institutions. Thank you so much for your continued support!”
