The District of Ohio is committed to supporting HBCUs in the State of Ohio. To that end, the 1906 HBCU Endowment Fund calls on all Alpha Men, Friends of Alpha and Supporters of Wilberforce and Central State Universities to make a (monthly or one-time) donation of at least $19.06 to support endowments which will eventually award scholarships to students attending these revered institutions. Once, we reach our short -term goal of $25,000 for each university, one male and one female student from each school will receive a 5,000 scholarship in the spring of 2022. Our long-term goal is to award 6 scholarships (three men and three women) at each University by 2024. All donations are tax-deductible.
Brothers, Friends of Alpha and Supporters of Wilberforce and Central State Universities, please share this initiative with family members, friends, colleagues and all other networks to which you belong. A link to each university’s dedicated webpage where you may make your tax-deductible donation is below. Thank You for supporting the District of Ohio and our HBCUs in the State of Ohio.
