The “Give One Up” Challenge
A dollar sure isn’t what it used to be, but with your participation in the Give One Up Challenge, we’ll put your hard-earned dollars to good use on behalf of HBCU Students. Beginning the first Tuesday in December, aka “Giving Tuesday”, we are asking everyone to commit to making a gift of $25, or $1 for every member of their family including themselves, that attended an HBCU. Perhaps you have your own reason for supporting the Give One Up Challenge and noone you know attended an HBCU. In that case, simply join the challenge with any donation amount you’d like and share your reason for donating. Our payment gateway PayPal has agreed to contribute an additional 1% based upon funds raised. Our goal in 2016 is to provide 50 scholarships to deserving students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities and with your help, we’ll do it!
With college costs rising dramatically each year, thousands of students from disadvantaged backgrounds, face the growing burden of paying for their college tuition and avoiding the pitfall of being saddled with enormous debt upon graduation. With your contribution, you allow a talented student to cover expenses and focus on completing their education, ensuring their access to excellent career opportunities and a chance to make a difference in our communities. Please give what you can, as every gift helps. To make a gift today, simply enter a gift amount below.
