The Tom Joyner Foundation, a major driving force in raising money for historically black colleges since 1998, today announced the 11 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) that it will raise money for in 2014.
The foundation, formed by the nationally syndicated radio personality, unveiled the names of the 2014 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’ next year, 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, aired in more than 100 markets around the country, reaches nearly eight million listeners every week.
