Message from the President:
Greetings Alumni, Students and Supporters.
Welcome to our Atlanta HBCU community!
The Atlanta HBCU Alumni Alliance was conceived January 2004 when
the Metro-Atlanta Alumni Chapter of Florida A&M University hosted a
Mixer fundraiser and new member recruitment event while inviting other
HBCU alumni chapters to join in on the fun. While only a handful of
Chapters were active participants, this was enough to spark a fire that
led to the creation of the Atlanta HBCU Alumni Alliance (AHBCUAA).
The leaders of 8 organizations met and brainstormed on how the
Chapters can formally collaborate to work collectively to host fundraising
events that one Chapter couldn’t successfully conduct on their own.
This led to the creation of The HBCU Alumni Mixer in 2005 that is held in
conjunction with the Annual Honda Battle of the Bands and has
continued to be one of our signature events to date.
Over time, the combined efforts grew to include community service
efforts consistent with our purpose of benefiting students and
contributing to higher education. This includes College Fairs in
conjunction with The Mayor of Atlanta's Next Step Youth Program as well
as college fairs hosted by the AHBCUAA.
One thing we know about HBCU alumni, there is never a shortage of
good old fashion competition. Shortly after the AHBCUAA was formed,
we began hosting an annual run walk event which is now our biggest
fundraiser with close to $100K in scholarships raised annually for metro
Atlanta students as well as supporting local chapters alumni reclamation
efforts with over 4.000 participants and spectators supporting this event
As the Atlanta HBCU Alumni Alliance has grown from 8 chapters to 51
chapters, we are most excited about the launch of additional Alliance
organizations in Washington, DC, Chicago, IL and Miami, FL further
expanding the HBCU community nationwide!
We hope you will make plans to support our HBCU institutions and local
communities by joining us in Atlanta as we demonstrate and celebrate
the HBCU legacy of giving back.
With much HBCU Pride!
