The J-5 Drum Majors for Academic Excellence Fundraising Campaign is in its 2nd year at Jackson State University. Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 by 2020 for endowed scholarships. Each year, we secure five head drum majors who establish an endowed scholarship in the amount of $25,000 to help our students.
Each head drum major donates a minimum of $5,000 each and reaches out to four other individuals who also donate $5,000 to the team, thereby making the total gift from each team $25,000. The scholarships benefit students in a JSU college or department. Alumni and friends may contribute online to the team of your choice which helps each team to reach or even surpass their financial goal.
Team members who contribute a minimum of $5,000 each will be recognized during the Homecoming football game. The total amount of $125,000 from all 5 teams is matched with Title III funds (if available), increasing the total to $250,000.
By 2020, we will have $1,000,000 to add to the University’s endowment.
