The Thurgood Marshall College Fund Teams Up With GoFundMe.com

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund is teaming up with GoFundMe.com to provide a platform for students at its 47-member institutions to raise money online to support their educations.

GoFundMe debuted a new TMCF fundraising hub, which will serve as a resource for students and their communities. The hub will make it easier for GoFundMe donors to find students attending HBCUs, as well as giving students and their families the tips and tools they need to launch a successful fundraising campaign.

“No American should be prevented from enrolling in and graduating from college because of money. Sadly, that is a reality for many HBCU students,” said Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., TMCF President & CEO.  “This innovative partnership with GoFundMe makes ordinary people extraordinary philanthropists, through their online giving platform now used to support deserving HBCU students pay for their college education.”

GoFundMe was launched in 2010. Since that time, more than $4 billion has been raised on the platform.
