Increasing Alumni Giving at HBCUs

Start by Broadening the Job Titles of Those Who Do the Asking

By reviewing historical perspectives and conducting current-day personal interviews, the authors researched ways to engage HBCU alumni in giving back to their alma maters.

From Volume 49 Number 3 | April–June 2021

Abstract: In higher education philanthropy, alumni giving is a tremendously vital aspect, especially for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Throughout the history of alumni giving, though, HBCUs have not enjoyed the same success in soliciting and cultivating donations as Primarily White Institutions (PWIs) have. We compiled literature and conducted snowball sampling of private HBCU alumni to understand the motivations for giving or not to their alma maters.

Campus Heritage Preservation Plan

This historically Black college developed its preservation plan for its historic core, in order to identify an overall preservation strategy and serve as the basis for all future conservation work.
Abstract: Bennett College, a historically Black private women's college founded in 1873, underwent two periods of growth in the 1920s and 1930s, resulting in a collection of handsome, Georgian Revival-style buildings sited around a rectangular quadrangle with double rows of oak and magnolia trees lining its east and west sides. Funding helped the college to develop a preservation plan for its 25-acre historic core, designated a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places, in order to identify an overall preservation strategy and serve as the basis for all future conservation work.

Campus Heritage Preservation Plan

Despite the historic significance of the buildings on this campus, little was known about aspects of their original appearance or previous alterations. The institution used Getty Campus Preservation funding to conduct archival research to document its historic resources, examine overall building conditions, and develop treatment guidelines.
Abstract: Together with Morehouse and Spelman Colleges (both also awarded Campus Heritage grants), Clark Atlanta is part of the Atlanta University Center (AUC), the largest consortium of historically Black institutions in the US. Clark Atlanta was formed in 1988 with the merger of Atlanta University, chartered in 1867, and Clark College, founded in 1877. Despite the historic significance of the buildings on the campus, little was known about aspects of their original appearance or previous alterations. Clark Atlanta conducted archival research to document its historic resources, examine overall building conditions, and develop treatment guidelines.

Abstract:

A historically Black private college chartered in 1930, Dillard University occupies a unified, axially designed campus in the Beaux Arts tradition. The ten white brick buildings that comprise the historic campus surround a large open quadrangle delineated by two long rows of live oak trees, the Avenue of the Oaks.
