Since its inception in 1987, the Fort Valley State University Black History Month Scholarship Luncheon has become the university’s largest annual scholarship fundraiser. To date, this fundraiser, along with earnings from the university’s endowment fund, has awarded more than $1.5 million in scholarships to students.
Thousands of companies and corporate foundations in the United States currently match their employees’ gifts to nonprofit organizations such as universities. Under a corporate matching gift program, gifts made by a company’s eligible employee or employee’s spouse are matched with company or corporate foundation funds.
