#MyHBCUgiveback, is a day to remember your Alma mater, honor its legacy and make it stronger than when you left .
We want to start a new tradition of giving on this day, every year. Today, we encourage you to give directly to your HBCU by going to their website and search 'Give'.
Another great option is to give to the HBCU Alumni Alliance which supports more than 100+ HBCUs and includes 50 alumni chapters. All the schools they support are listed on their 'give' page.
This is an initiative between the Atlanta and Washington, D.C. Chapters of the HBCU Alumni Alliance and TRADITION.
