The Tom Joyner Foundation Celebrates And Advocates For Giving Tuesday
Every year , we take a day to give thanks on Thanksgiving, we take a day to catch the best shopping deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Now, there’s Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back, the ultimate opportunity to pay it forward!
Here at the Tom Joyner Foundation our mission is to strengthen our country’s HBCU’s by raising funds to help keep students enrolled in school and on the path to success. Our supporters are making a direct impact on the lives of these students with their donations, which are used to build scholarships for students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
