The Black Alumni Summit is exploring a number of partnerships, and we’re excited that our friends at www.Fanatics.com have offered a 10% discount for all our alumni needs!
Whether it might be t-shirts, sweat-shirts, game gear, kitchen/home items, tailgating items, or gifts – they’ve got it all!
They also have some GREAT items for all your favorite professional teams too!
They gave us a special code for our discount, which you can download below. Code is valid until August 3, 2019
In the Challenge, each alumni participant agrees to run/walk a number of miles from August 1-31 as part of their black alumni association's team. Alumni who complete miles agree to make a gift of that amount to their black alumni association by September 1, 2019. Schools compete to see which alumni base achieves the highest number of miles (and dollars raised). The winning school receives two registrations to the Twenty20 Conference hosted by Florida State University Black Alumni (Tallahassee, FL). Contact us to learn more!
August is Black Philanthropy Month, and we are excited to offer initiatives to support and strengthen our work across alumni networks, campuses, cities, and universities.
Many black alumni associations have collaborated to create the Philanthropy Support Packet, which contains templates, tools, and resources than can be easily adapted.
We'll have two webinars (Fundraising for Annual Fund, Major Gifts, and Endowed Funds on Tuesday, August 13 and Giving Circles at our Black Alumni Associations and Groups on Tuesday, August 20). Please be sure to RSVP for these courses, and feel free to share with alumni and friends.
MISSION: The Black Alumni Summit unifies and empowers black alumni individuals and groups through civic engagement, economics, and advocacy.
The Summit was created in Atlanta in fall 2019 after black leaders across 10+ schools agreed that a collective voice is essential in moving our universities, alumni, and local communities and forward.
Our logo, designed by University of South Carolina alumna Andrea Glover represents the five southern states where we launched our work, the logo colors of Partnering Schools, and the triangular shapes to reflect the sharpness of our collective mindpower.
