The Washington, DC Metro HBCU Alumni Alliance, Inc.’s (DCHBCUAA) community outreach mission is to improve the health and well-being of our communities. Our efforts are aimed at reducing health disparities that are pervasive in predominantly African American communities. Depending on where you live in the Washington, DC area, there is a 15 year difference in life expectancy. Our programming is focused on addressing the social determinants of health and our priority areas are Health & Wellness, Hunger Awareness, and Higher Education. By leveraging the full value of the Alumni Alliance, we educate the community, provide financial resources, offer volunteers, and work strategically with our community partners to make a measurable impact to address the following issues: health, hunger, and education.
We are asking our DMV Wildcats and supporters to please register for the race or make a donation. A portion of the proceeds will go to our alumni chapter. Registration is $40 before May 1, 2019, after May 1, the cost is $45. Thank you for continued support!
The Tom Joyner Foundation is excited to partner with Fort Valley State University to raise funds as the June "School of the Month"! We are calling on all alumni chapters, notable alumni, affinity groups and others to join us in supporting this campaign. During this campaign, you will have an opportunity to bring national attention to your college and to millions of listeners of the Tom Joyner Morning Show in over 100 markets.
It is vitally important that ALL Alumni come together to show support for Fort Valley State University, its legacy and the students. All chapters who raise $2,500 or more will have the opportunity to do a 30 second promotion on the Tom Joyner Morning Show! These on-air packages will provide exposure to the school, branding opportunities, support recruitment efforts and raise needed dollars for student scholarships. 100% of all funds raised will go to the college.
To make a financial contribution to the Tom Joyner Foundation toward scholarships to serve FVSU students, please text FVSU to 41444. Thank you in advance for supporting this scholarship effort.
On behalf of the FVSU Washington DC Metro Area Alumni Chapter College Fair Recruitment Committee, we would like to thank our alumni for your support in this recruitment of highly, astute and talented future Wildcats. Your efforts of support continues to be unwavering. And because of the efforts by this committee, we would like to present our annual college fair recruitment report for this year. The numbers for this year has dipped substantially, but the factors in the numbers are coinciding of a couple of the college fairs scheduling the same day with SAT testing. Meaning, the likelihood of students being in attendance, will ultimately be lower. Nevertheless, we continue to recruit what is available and to those students that are looking for a great education at THE Fort Valley State University.
The year 2019 will be here soon and we are preparing for new things and strategizing ways to reach as many young people in the Washington DC metropolitan area. We hope that our alumni can continue to support us by volunteering their time at these college fairs when the schedules are out. If you are unable to support us with your time of service, please, continue to give monetarily to the alumni chapter for the financial support we give to the students we recruit in this area. We need everyone to BE INVOLVED for the growth of our university and the alumni support for the future of our alumni chapter. Again, thank you and we will see you next year!
