Fisk trustee offers to match $500,000 in donations
A trustee of Fisk University has issued a first-of-its-kind $500,000 challenge.
The trustee will match all donations received between May 19 and June 30, up to a half million dollars. The trustee, one of 25 on the university’s board, wishes to remain anonymous until the end of the fundraising challenge.
The school’s goal this fiscal year is to raise $4 million for student scholarships. University officials are expecting a surge in enrollment next year, projecting 700-800 students. This year, there are 645.
The university’s application goal for next year’s incoming class was 4,000. Thus far, the university has received over 6,000 applications.
Tuition, fees and room and board at the historically African-American university run about $31,000 a year. Between 75 and 80 percent of all students require financial aid.
Donations can be made at the button above or mailed to Fisk University at 1000 17th Ave., Nashville, Tenn. 37208.
