2014 is the second year the Tom Joyner Foundation is participating in #GivingTuesday! What’s this? It’s a global day of giving back, the ultimate opportunity to pay it forward!

Want to know more information about the Foundation before giving? Here are 5 fun facts:

1. Since our beginning in 1998 The Tom Joyner Foundation has provided support to EVERY HBCU to help keep scholars in school and preserve the legacies of these valuable institutions.

2. The Tom Joyner Foundation is the brain child of syndicated radio host Tom Joyner, who is a HBCU Alumnus that attended Tuskegee University.

3. The Tom Joyner Foundation is a completely flow through agency, which means that

100% of your donations go to the HBCUs we support or the HBCU that you specify that you would like your donation to go toward. We don’t keep any of the funds raised for overhead cost, each dollar raised goes toward the mission of keeping scholars in school.

4.  The Tom Joyner Foundation staff are HBCU Alums! They  hail from Howard University, Tuskegee University, Hampton University, Jackson State University, Oakwood University, and Lemoyne Owen University. We are products of the cause we believe in and work toward everyday.

5. Since 1998 with the help of supporters like you, we have raised over $65 Million to support more than 29,000 students. We couldn’t have done this without you!
