FAMU Giving At Record Pace Under New President’s Leadership
Since April 2014, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University’s President Elmira Mangum, Ph.D., has spent countless hours traveling the country to raise the University’s profile. Her efforts have shown a sizeable return on investment as giving during the first five months of the current fiscal year is at a record pace. Since June of this year, FAMU has received more than $3 million in cash donations as compared to $1.1 million for the same period last year. In addition, nearly $4 million in pledges has been made to the University, bringing the total amount of donations through November to almost $7 million. “As I travel the nation, I have been overwhelmed by the positive response that I have received and by the high esteem to which people hold the University” .
“People are beginning to see how important giving is to the lifeblood of the institution and that their contributions, no matter how small, can help the University to achieve its mission,” Mangum added.
