Join the Movement on Giving Tuesday 2017

Join the movement! On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, people all over the world will give to the causes that they hold most dear to their hearts. On this international day of giving, the Tom Joyner Foundation will continue its nearly 20-year mission of raising money for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and their students. We hope you consider helping us help more students go to and stay in HBCUs.

On Giving Tuesday, our goal for the day is to raise $10,000 through donations to help us do the following:

  • Provide diverse academic opportunities for HBCU students to become global citizens
  • Provide HBCU students scholarships and access to special programs to help them complete their college degrees
  • Provide programming to expand knowledge of the arts
  • Develop initiatives to strengthen HBCUs through capacity building and marketing
  • Develop programs that strengthen ties between HBCUs and the communities where they are housed
