Greetings JSU Tiger Family!
It’s March Madness Month. We want to slam dunk our goal of getting 5,000 new alums to do the following:
- Each new donor/alum gives $5 by the end of March Madness Month
- Each new donor/alum recruits 5 new JSU Alums/Supporters to give $5 each by the end of March Madness Month
- This is a donor campaign; individual donations are required for an increase in our Alumni Participation Rate (APR).
We will collectively raise over $25,000 during our March Madness - Elevate the Rate Campaign for our student-athletes, Sonic Boom of the South, Prancing J-Settes, Cheerleaders, and other student organizations. We will increase our APR by doing the following.
Let’s continue to inspire others to majorly impact Jackson State University, all while boosting JSU’s APR. The APR is one key factor when evaluating and ranking colleges and universities, including Jackson State University. Rankings can affect JSU’s reputation, reputation can influence JSU enrollment, and enrollment can impact revenue from tuition. Also, alumni participation rates can be a point of Tiger pride among HBCUs, The SWAC, and other colleges nationwide.
With 5,000 new JSU alumni supporters, we can score high and win during this March Madness month.
