HBCU Money’s 12 Month HBCU Alumni Giving Challenge


To give away money is an easy matter, and in any man’s power. But to decide to whom to give it, and how large and when, and for what purpose and how, is neither in every man’s power-nor an easy matter. Hence it is that such excellence is rare, praiseworthy and noble. – Aristotle

  1. Informative and awesome article. This compels me to continually give & encourage others to give to our HBCUs, as well. Every since I reflected on Selma, I have had this desire to take MLK King’s movement, to today’s times & empower us as a people financially & legislatively. The time has come.
