“As a product of an HBCU, I look forward to using my platform to promote the TMCF Forever Fund and put a big spotlight on TMCF, and the schools they represent. I know first-hand the value of HBCUs and how vital having funding for college and development opportunities are to all students.”

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) is leading the way in supporting and providing opportunities at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs).

The TMCF Forever Fund is a comprehensive fundraising initiative established to ensure the long-term fiscal vitality of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) remains strong and healthy to continue its work to help identify and nurture Historically Black College and University (HBCU) and Predominantly Black Institution (PBI) students to become the next generation of global leaders.

By donating to the TMCF Forever Fund, you help to ensure the future of TMCF, as well as the futures of the thousands of young adults from our nation’s HBCUs and PBIs that we serve every year through our vital programs, services, and scholarships. Your support helps
MAKE OUR MISSION MATTER.

WHY DONATE

For too many students, higher education is increasingly becoming unaffordable. In some cases, even if a student makes it into college, he or she can’t fully utilize their educational experience to maximize their career potential because of a lack of financial support and career readiness exposure.

An unrestricted donation to the TMCF Forever Fund supports:

  • TMCF’s long-term financial health and stability to ensure that TMCF
    continues to be a viable, sustainable organization for years to come.
  • TMCF’s ability to execute its mission to change the lives of young adults at its member-schools across the country through its existing scholarships, programs, and services.
  • TMCF’s ability to develop and launch innovative new programs to meet students’ and member-schools’ evolving needs.

An Organization You Can Trust

Since its inception in 1987, TMCF has raised more than $300 million to support its member-schools, as well as the nearly 300,000 students matriculating on the campuses. TMCF has a proven track record of using its funds to efficiently and effectively fulfill the mission. The TMCF Forever Fund is another way to ensure TMCF’s work is sustainable.

HOW WE USE YOUR DONATIONS

                           

HBCUs MATTER
Since 1987, TMCF has focused on increasing opportunities for students attending HBCUs to afford college and develop their leadership skills so they can have meaningful careers that will support them and their families. As the nation’s largest organization exclusively representing the black college community, TMCF works to help identify and nurture HBCU students to become the next generation of global leaders.

HBCUs enroll thousands of diverse talented students and successfully serve the needs of first-generation and low-income students as more than 70% of all students at HBCUs qualify for federal Pell Grants, and 80% receive federal loans.

While they only make up 3% of the colleges and universities in America, they produce almost 20% of all African American graduates in the STEM fields. In addition, they provide a solid basis for high academic achievement as top producers of African American Ph.D.’s in science and engineering.

But the work of changing the world, one leader at a time cannot happen without the support of our partners. Our donors and corporate partners invest in the talented students at our 47 member-schools and the broader HBCU community because they believe in building upon the rich and critically important legacy of HBCUs. Historically, HBCUs have produced generations of American leaders, helped to expand the Black middle class, and generated millions of college degrees. The HBCU legacy includes the like of Terrence J, Chadwick Boseman, Martin Luther King, Jr., Oprah Winfrey, Spike Lee, Toni Morrison, Will Packer, Phylicia Rashad, Justice Thurgood Marshall and many more.

To sustain the historic success of HBCU graduates, we must invest in TMCF to ensure the support for the students on these campuses will last forever.
