“Preserving your greatest memories, helping the next generation to create new ones”
I Heart My HBCU app, is the leading and preeminent spare-change funding platform for HBCUs. Since 2017, iHeart My HBCU has brought together HBCU alumnae and supporters to not only donate, but to create a massive movement that will preserve the rich history and social importance of these institutions, while also aiding in the creation of exciting and lifelong memories for its students, faculty, staff, and surrounding communities.
I Heart My HBCU, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation governed by a single Board of Directors that is responsible for setting policy, establishing long-term goals, monitoring general operations, and approving the organizational outcomes and allocation of resources. The Board is composed entirely of volunteers who are mostly HBCU graduates.
I Heart My HBCU’s mission is to guarantee that Historically Black Colleges and Universities will be here to serve future generations for many years to come.
As the first spare change funding platform of its kind, specifically serving Historically Black Colleges and Universities, I HEART MY HBCU gives back in so many ways. In fact, 80 cents for every dollar will go to student aid and scholarships. The funding raised will also support campus renovations and assist in the hiring and retaining of top-quality educators and staff. Social and transformational programs currently offered at HBCUs will also be available to access funding raised by I Heart My HBCU, increasing the reach and capacity of these programs to change even more lives of the students enrolled.
I Heart My HBCU’s commitment to support the educational institutions that help shape creative, talented, and brilliant young black minds is foundational to its purpose, as we not only want to pay homage to the incredible role that these institutions have played in the lives of all of its alumnae, but also to help secure an even brighter future for its current students and those yet to come.
