Thank you to all the donors who helped us reach our first goal of $2,000. We have such great news to share! The Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences has agreed to match the amount we raise, dollar for dollar, up to $2,500.00. Please help us secure this matching donation. THANK YOU!
Honor Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune who turned $1.50 into capital to run a school. Baking and selling sweet potato pies was one of her most well-known efforts for fundraising. Multiply $1.50 x 20 to honor her ingenuity and ability to turn a small amount of money into education for students.
Honor Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune’s persistence and commitment which transformed a small school into a university. Multiply 1.50 x 37, the number of years that the African American Studies Program has been in existence at Montclair State University.
Honor Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune’s notoriety as an educator and civil rights leader. Multiply 1.50 x 100 to celebrate her as an ardent believer in the power of education.
Honor 1985, the year our program was founded. Sustain the legacy. Share our commitment to rising scholar-warriors dedicated to building a world where we thrive together.
