The HBCU Campaign Fund (HCF) organization cordially invites Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Predominately Black Institutions to participate in part of its Supported Institution of the Month Initiative Program that is designed as a monthly awareness and another venue of advertisement for HBCU and PB institutions which targets the areas of infrastructure, academic programs, fundraising, recruitment and enrollment, and institutional development.
The program will annually select twelve (12) partner schools with support by the HCF organization. The partner schools are exposed to HCF audience and support system socially and publicly and are giving the opportunity to be advocated throughout a month on HCF social media handles (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WordPress, and Website).
During the partner schools months, HCF strives to bring awareness toward recruitment and monetary giving (if the school chosen to do so, through its institutional advancement or foundation office).
The partner school will be given a partnership page on HCF’s website dedicated to its designated month. The page will include school pride photos, student profiles, the institution’s history, a recruitment video (if accessible), a link to the institution’s website, admissions application link, and information provided by the institutional advancement or foundation office pertaining to ways to give, and any other accessible information requested to be added by the institutions. HCF will have designated hashtag for social media engagement.
TIMELINE – Partner schools will be selected in three parts:
- Interest institutions may submit an application via HCF’s website at www.hbcucampaignfund.org/programs/supportedinstitutions/ and must be submitted no later than September 1, 2018.
- October 2018: all submitted applications and proposals will be reviewed. The partner schools advancing in the process will be notified by email.
- December 2018: the organization will make an announcement of the selected partner schools.
