B-CU Faculty and Staff Alumni Launch "We Are Our Answer" Campaign
We Are Our Answer B-CU Campus Cohort held a a press conference and check presentation in the President's Banquet Room of the Mary McLeod Bethune Performing Arts Center on Friday, March 29, 2019, officially launching the second phase of the We Are Our Answer $1.5 million campaign.
"Phase one of our two-part campaign was to raise $15,000 from the Campus Alumni Cohort, and then lead the effort in phase two to raise $1.5M from alumni and friends nationwide. To date, we have exceeded our initial goal, raising $26,633," said Dr. Camesha Whittaker-Manzueta, Cohort Spearhead and Director of the B-CU BJ Moore Center for Faculty Innovation.
Some 85 faculty and staff, who are alumni of B-CU, rallied around the mission of B-CU to strategize on how to assist the institution and identify ways to increase alumni giving, thus forming the We Are Our Answer Fundraising Initiative.
"The campaign is aimed at increasing the network of stakeholders who are involved and amplifying nationwide alumni support for University operations," Manzueta said.
The Cohort presented the campaign's goals during the Ninth Annual Alumni Day of Service hosted on the campus of B-CU and have since garnered the support from alumni nationwide, including the 28 chapters of the National Alumni Association.
Funds raised will be directed to University operational expenses.
