Southern University System Foundation to kick off annual Million Dollar March to raise funds for five campuses
The Southern University System Foundation will kick off its annual Million Dollar March on Wednesday at 4-5:30 p.m. on the Southern University and A&M College-Baton Rouge Facebook page. The 90-day campaign continues to be a steady boost to Foundation funds that aid Southern University System campuses — Southern University and A&M College, Southern University at New Orleans, Southern University Shreveport, Southern University Law Center, and Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center. In 2021, private philanthropic gifts to the Foundation provided more than $14.5 milliion in student scholarships, faculty research and program grants, campus operational support, and capital campus improvements.
The alumni challenge speaker is Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, Southern University Law Center alumna and CEO of Feeding America. Joining her in conversation will be Scottie Hunter, reporter and anchor for WAFB 9News in Baton Rouge. Southern System administrators and other stakeholders are also expected to participate.
