It's almost Giving Tuesday!
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27th and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.
Help us reach this year's goal of $1,500.00 and you will directly support 2 scholarships and the annual back to school supply drive.
The Hello My Name is King Scholarship provides support to young Black men who aspire to attend a college or university. While the majority of monetary awards require applicants to hold a minimum 3.0 GPA, the Hello My Name is King Scholarship welcomes students who have at least a 2.8 GPA. Wherein, we provide support to an overlooked group. Learn more here.
Our annual back to school supply drive provides elementary and middle school youth with backpacks and the tools to start the school year strong. Learn more here.
