Tom Joyner Foundation Announces 2016 Partner Schools

HBCU

The Tom Joyner Foundation, a major driving force in raising money and persevering the legacy for historically black colleges and university (HBCUS) since 1998, today announced the 11 institutions that it will raise money for in 2016.

The foundation, formed by the nationally syndicated radio personality, unveiled the names of the 2016 schools as part of its on-going effort to assist these institutions in broadening and strengthening their efforts to raise money to help keep students attending HBCUs.

As one of the Tom Joyner Foundation ‘Schools of the Month’, each school will be promoted by the Tom Joyner Morning Show and receive those funds raised from listeners, alumni and other interested parties that month. The show airs on nearly 100 stations with a broadcast and digital audience of over 8 million.
