Dear HCF Supporters,

#GivingTuesday is a global day that allows individuals to support causes and organizations that make a difference in their communities and around the world. Every year, on the Tuesday after Cyber Monday, the HBCU Campaign Fund (HCF) is pleased to join in Giving Tuesday and with the help of our support, the fight to Campaign for HBCUs will continue to assure that HCF can support the important assignment that HBCUs and MSIs do in providing quality education to a diverse population of students.

This year, our goal is to reach $50,000 in necessary funding to continue our mission to provide scholarships and support higher education. Gifts donated during HCF’s #GivingTuesday campaign will be used where needed most in support of students attending HBCUs and higher education, specifically Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Predominately Black Institutions (PBIs).

Higher education can be the debt of a student during their matriculating, and with your support of HCF, we can assist with helping those students with their educational endeavors. On Tuesday, November 30, 2021, we encourage you to consider HCF in reaching its goals to advocate for higher education, making a recurring or one-time gift below.

Talladega College President Dr. Billy C. Hawkins (left) is presented a plaque in recognition of being named No. 1 among the 10 Most Dominant HBCU Leaders for 2020 by the HBCU Campaign Fund. Demetrius Johnson Jr., Fund president and CEO, made the presentation.

(TALLADEGA, AL) – When the HBCU Campaign Fund (HCF) named Talladega College President Dr. Billy C. Hawkins No. 1 among the 10 Most Dominant HBCU Leaders for 2020, the Fund’s president and CEO, Demetrius Johnson Jr., planned to hand deliver a commemorative plaque to the honoree.

Due to the pandemic, Johnson postponed his trip to Talladega College for nearly 10 months.

Fortunately, he was recently able to present the prestigious award to Hawkins and tour the college campus. Johnson said the positive changes on campus were among the reasons Hawkins was named the No. 1 Most Dominant HBCU Leader for 2020.

“The top 10 leaders were chosen for their influence and their continuous progress moving their institutions forward,” said Johnson. “Dr. Hawkins was named first on our list become of the way in which he has transformed Talladega College.

“Under his leadership, the college has achieved record-high enrollment for three consecutive years, constructed three new buildings and launched its first-ever graduate program — a Master of Science in computer information systems,” Johnson continued.

Johnson also praised Hawkins for his leadership he has provided for other HBCUs.

Hawkins serves as chair of the 37 presidents of member institutions for the UNCF (United Negro College Fund) board of directors and also serves as UNCF chair of the executive committee of member institutions, vice chair of the corporate board and vice chair of the corporate board executive committee.
