Thank You to the 300

Greetings Morehouse Brother,

First and foremost let me take this opportunity to personally thank you for your response to this call. Eighty eight (89) alumni and friends from across the country have enthusiastically supported this effort. In just a few short days, alumni donated money to the tune of $26,775 dollars and donations are still coming in. Brothers, your efforts have not gone unnoticed

At the recent Alumni Reunion Banquet, the Chairman of the Morehouse College Board of Trustees, Willie "Flash" Davis '56, applauded this Alumni Association driven effort and the alumni that supported it. He spoke of his own senior experiences and the need for alumni to continue to step up and ensure that we continue to graduate students.

One of our goals is to be good stewards of Association funds. A major part of that is accountability of funds raised for projects like 300 Morehouse Men. That being said we raised $41,775 total, which included a direct contribution from the Association, as approved by our board of directors. Of this amount $25,000.00 went to senior student aide. Monies where spent to assist 35 students in meeting their financial obligations for graduation in May 2011. These students came from across the country and across the globe and they majored in liberal arts, business, and science. The remaining balance of $16,775 has been earmarked for next year’s seniors and gives us a jump on fundraising for next year.

We will continue this effort and are making it a part of the Alumni Association’s annual programs. Alumni can donate at anytime throughout the year via the Association’s website, check, or cash. We will keep a running tally that can be viewed on the Association’s website. In addition we will keep a running list of those alumni that have donated to the 300 Morehouse Men Campaign. We are working with the College to identify additional ways that the College and the Association can partner together to offer alumni more ways to give and better accountability.
