Raleigh–Wake Alumni Chapter Makes 2nd $10,000 Donation

Raleigh-Wake Alumni Check Presentation

May 8, 2013 - Members of the Shaw University Raleigh-Wake Alumni Chapter presented $10,050 to Shaw University President Dr. Dorothy Cowser Yancy this week. This is the second $10,000 donation the Chapter presented this semester.

“I am especially excited about our efforts as this donation came from actual chapter members giving to the University without hosting fundraisers such as dances,” said Chapter President Dr. Mack Sowell. “We are not just alumni; we are alumni investors, investing in the University because it’s the right thing to do. If we invest in Shaw, we all benefit.”

Donations were collected from more than 260 chapter members. They are currently collecting donations as part of another effort to raise an additional $10,000 to meet their $30,000 chapter giving goal. Additionally, the Chapter hopes to meet President Yancy’s challenge for every Shaw alumni chapter to give a quarterly donation.
