Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. announced last week that the organization reached a record-breaking amount of fundraising for HBCUs in just one day.
The organization’s HBCU Impact Day succeeded to surpass its original goal of $1 million by raising over double that amount.
According to the sorority’s official website, the HBCU Impact Day is one part of a four-year $10 million fundraising goal under the HBCU for Life: A Call to Action initiative.
The HBCU for Life initiative is something that Dr. Glenda Glover, AKA international president and chief executive officer, believes will be essential for the future of HBCUs.
“It’s gratifying to know that funds raised will support endowments, providing sustainability to our historically black colleges and universities. I am especially appreciative to everyone who contributed to the success of this year’s HBCU Impact Day,” Dr. Glover stated in the release.
The organization has several different initiatives geared not only to HBCUs but to education in general, varying from funding efforts to community outreach.
