Closing the HBCU Alumni Giving Gap
To date, roughly 10 Historically Black Colleges & Universities have giving percentages over 15% according to U.S. News & World Report. However, Claflin University, a South Carolina HBCU has record giving with a 50.4 % average. Higher Ed philanthropy is changing, especially the way we connect with millennial alumni and Generation Z givers.
This panel will discuss this challenge in-depth while providing solutions for what can be done to increase HBCU alumni giving and close the giving divide.
