TAKE THE PLEDGE
CampusLATELY.com the #1 collegiate community and leading college marketing firm proudly announces its support with Roland Martin’s initiative #HBCUGivingDay and is asking all HBCU Alumni to take the HBCU pledge #pledge60. The importance of the initiative is to donate money to support scholarships and research at institutions geared toward the education of minorities and first generation students. With around 70 percent of all HBCU students relying on federal grants and work-study programs to finance their studies, #HBCUGivingDay becomes more imperative.
The host, and managing editor of TV One’s NewsOne Now, Roland Martin, recently shared the importance of HBCU graduates giving back to their institutions during an interview with The Breakfast Club. According to The U.S. News & World Report, as little as 3% of HBCU Alumni give back to the university that helped shape them.
