Thank you! We want to express our sincerest gratitude for your generous support of our first-ever Give 8/28 campaign. Give 8/28 was created to promote financial giving to black-led and black-benefiting nonprofits. Because of the collective efforts of faculty, staff, alumni, retirees, corporate, and foundation partners, who embraced this important day of giving, we raised a total of $40,181 in gifts and pledges for the Owl Emergency Response Fund. Congratulations to you all!


August 28 was chosen as the perfect day of action for black giving, due to the day’s significance in history:
  • August 28, 1955: 14-year-old Emmett Till was brutally murdered by three white men, which became a “flashpoint in the civil rights movement”.
  • August 28, 1963: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his iconic “I Have A Dream” speech during the landmark March
  • August 28, 2005: Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana. The storm, which devastated New Orleans, inordinately impacted many of the city’s black residents.
  • August 28, 2008: Then-Senator Barack Obama accepted the Democratic nomination for president, becoming the first black man to ever win the nomination and bid for the presidency.
