Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., in partnership with the Educational Advancement Foundation, has pledged an endowment in the amount of $100,000 to Fayetteville State University as a part of the organization’s AKA-HBCU Endowment Fund.

“Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. has implemented the AKA-HBCU Endowment Fund with the goal of investing in the future of our young people and the sustainability of our treasured HBCUs,” Alpha Kappa Alpha International President Dr. Glenda Glover said. “Our organization has pledged to donate a total of $10 million toward the endowment, and we are honored to provide Fayetteville State University the first $50,000 during our February event as we celebrate Black History Month and the legacies of all HBCUs.”

“This donation to our endowment is a testimony to the sorority’s continued support of education and scholarship,” Chancellor James A. Anderson said. “This gift also is indicative of Alpha Kappa Alpha’s commitment and dedication to historically black colleges and universities, and the sorority’s desire to see them thrive and survive.”
