Alabama A&M University Washington D.C. Alumni Chapter
If you are an Alabama A&M Alum, you may have been a recipient of the generosity of other alums while you were matriculating as a student. That could have been by way of a scholarship or other monetary donations that certainly helped to ensure you were able to focus on your mission of excelling academically. Thus, you may now give back to this next generation of students as they strive to meet the heights of their educational prowess, as well as, affording students in the future to have the best experience, ever. There are several ways to donate electronically, or by mail. See below. You may also donate directly to the Scholarship or General Fund by clicking the Donate buttons below.

AAMU Washington, DC Metropolitan Area Endowment Fund
The AAMU Washington, DC Metropolitan Area Endowment Fund was established in 2011. After an incredible campaign to raise the minimum $25,000 goal in less than two years, we not only met the challenge. We exceeded it! The generous support by AAMU alumni, family and friends enabled us to raise $30,000 by July 31, 2011 and receive matching funds from the University’s Office of Institutional Advancement for a total of $60,000! Interest generated from the endowment will provide ongoing financial support to students from Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC who are attending AAMU.
Alabama A&M University Foundation
Now, we need to continue to donate, annually, to increase the amount of financial support we can give to the students. This is also an excellent way to make tax deductible donation to the university. Make your check payable to: Alabama A&M University Foundation. Donations and pledges should be mailed to: P.O. Box 294, Normal, AL 35762. In the memo section of your check, please indicate “Account #570 WDC Metro Alumni Endowed Scholarship”. You can also pay online by clicking the “Become a Donor Today” link below, going to the dropdown box and then selecting “Washington, DC Alumni Chapter Endowment”.
Additional Giving Opportunities
At the University level, the Annual Fund, the 1875 Normalite Campaign, the Adopt-A-Band Student Uniform Drive are other options for giving. In addition, athletics teams, individual named scholarships, Greek organizations, departments and other areas can be donated to through this giving process. There is something for everyone including the “Where the need is greatest” option. So, remember to “Give” because these students are truly our future!
