TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Moving up the ranks as one of the best Black colleges in the U.S. with a winning football team, Florida A&M University is on the rise and is planning to build on that success with a major fundraising tour.

Their multi-city, FAMU Rising Tour, kicks off in November in Orlando and goes through June. The university hopes to raise more than $12 million in donations for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. 

Last year, FAMU raised a little over $11 million in alumni donations. 

“People are going to see that we are being nationally recognized for the great work we do here and I think that is only going to bolster our fundraising efforts,” said Dr. Shawnta Friday-Stroud, Vice President of University Advancement. 

The university plans to use the money raised to focus on student scholarships, student success initiatives, FAMU athletics, and the arts and history.
