The HBCU Information Network (HBCUIn) is on a keen mission: to educate high school students on attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), as well as their ongoing purpose within the community and continual economic impact of their student body, both past and present. To date, HBCUs enroll more than 370,000 students and graduate nearly 25 percent of all African-American undergraduate degrees and take account for over half of today’s African-American professionals.
We are extremely pleased that your company is interested in supporting our work. When your company joins us through a corporate alliance, your employees and customers have the opportunity to see that you are truly committed to diversity. The HBCU Information Network experiences not only fulfill a heartfelt desire, but bring happiness and joy to children, families and more than often, entire communities.
To the HBCU Information Network, “corporate philanthropy” is more than a business catchphrase. We recognize the value of corporate support and we could not survive without it. Corporate sponsors play significant roles in helping our kids and most importantly motivating them to Live Educated. By creating successful corporate sponsorships, we are able to grow our mission and reach more young adults every year in some of the most underrepresented communities throughout country.
If first-generation students can attain an associate’s or bachelor’s degrees, they can earn comparable salaries and are employed in similar occupations as non-first-generation students.
Thank you for considering the HBCU Information Network as your nonprofit alliance. We take pride in having one of the most innovative, yet well-respected brands in America.
