Foundation Teams Up To Help Students Attending Black Colleges And Universities

Columbus, OH ( -- The HBCU Foundation, Inc., as a part of its mission of helping disadvantaged high school and college students who attend, or plan to attend a Historically Black College or University (HBCU), has teamed up with The Kroger Company to raise funds for high school and college students in Michigan and Ohio.

Through Kroger's “Community Rewards” program, Kroger shoppers in the sates of Michigan and Ohio can earn rewards for The HBCU Foundation who will be credited up to $50,000 per quarter based upon total purchases made in select Kroger Stores through April 30th, 2010. Under its Community Rewards program, Kroger has committed to donating up to $1,250,000 to qualifying charitable organizations.

“The HBCU Foundation has answered the prayers of students and their families since 1999 by providing timely scholarships to disadvantaged nationally and is especially proud to be engaged locally here in Ohio and Michigan. Students and their families are being forced to make tough decisions about where to shop so we want to make it a little easier for these families, students and our supporters. Having a partner in our scholarship fundraising efforts like Kroger Stores could mean the difference between a student completing his or her education, or dropping out of school entirely," says Daniel Moss, CEO of The HBCU Foundation, Inc.

For purchases to qualify as a part of this program, supporters must first register their Kroger Shoppers Cards online at and follow the provided instructions upon signing up.

The HBCU Foundation has leveraged partnerships like those with the “Kroger Community Rewards” program to help support its goal of developing leadership from among the nation's brightest young minds at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and especially to raise funds to support scholarship-giving as well as the awarding of technology grants to the HBCUs, their students and alumni organizations.

The HBCU Foundation holds several events each year including its annual HBCU Alumni Cruise, a fundraiser benefiting HBCUs and students nationally.

About The HBCU Foundation
Founded in 2006, The HBCU Foundation, Inc. is the non-profit arm of the largest organization and website dedicated to Historically Black Colleges and Universities in existence – has more than 1.7 Million HBCU Alumni and Student members and has been serving the needs of the HBCU Alumni and Student communities online since 1999.
