The Tom Joyner Foundation is partnering with the South Carolina State University Foundation (SCSU-F), to help raise funds to support scholars attending South Carolina State.
As a partner with the Tom Joyner Foundation ‘Schools of the Month’, the SCSU-F and its chapters will be promoted on the Tom Joyner Morning Show and receive those funds raised from listeners, alumni and other interested parties that month. The show, aired in 115 markets around the country, reaches nearly eight million listeners every week.
SCSU-F is an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) entity organized solely to promote the welfare and future development of South Carolina State University. The university’s vision is to become a top-tier public university focused on academics, research, public service and student life. This vision is made possible by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of business and community leaders.
