"The single most difficult challenge facing HBCUs is to identify major funders/investors in our institutions and students. We have a strong history of delivering positive educational outcomes with underrepresented, disadvantaged student populations, but this work requires significant financial resources." Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., President & CEO of Thurgood Marshall College Fund

“Engaging alumni in the philanthropy process is vital to the success and survival of HBCUs. Through the HBCU Symposium, advancement professionals share and learn best-practices regarding alumni relations, fundraising, advancement services, communications and marketing. This comprehensive approach to HBCUs and educational advancement is critical and should not be missed!” Rob Henry, vice president, Education, CASE

“HBCUs play a disproportionately critical role in graduating our nation's minority students, but they have traditionally lacked sufficient financial resources, which are exacerbated in an environment where higher education business models are changing rapidly. DSU’s Symposium helps mobilize and equip HBCUs and other minority-serving institutions to strengthen their ability to raise additional funds to support students in their college dreams.” William F.L. Moses, Kresge’s managing director for its Education Program.
