The Tom Joyner Foundation is focused on ensuring the future of Historically Black Colleges and Universities well into the 21st Century through customized capacity building programs. At the same time, it is committed to ensuring that students at these schools are exposed to diverse academic opportunities to enable them to successfully achieve their goal of completing their college education.
The Foundation has provided the support to every HBCU in its 14 year history to help sustain, and preserve the legacies of these valuable institutions. Through fundraising and donor development initiatives, $65 million has been raised to support more than 29,000 students attending HBCUs. Additionally, the Foundation has recommended internships, matching grants support, and career development to deserving students. – less
