Giving Tuesday 2020

From Thanksgiving to Giving Tuesday every year is the only period where Trajectory Foundation actively fundraises.  So far this year our donations for students attending HBCUs have grown 135%, allowing us to grow from two scholarships to SIX while raising each scholarship value to $5,000 per year.  We plan to award at least two new scholarships in the Spring of ’21 giving us a total of EIGHT by this time next year.  We could not have this impact on young black students without your generosity and are thankful for your consideration of a donation during this trying year.

Congratulations to Our Newest 2020 Scholarship Recipients!

Trevion will be a sophomore at North Carolina A&T this fall after achieving a 3,7 GPA in her freshman year majoring in Criminal Justice.  Trevion is from the small, racially divided and economically challenged town of Roxboro, North Carolina. Her parents were factory workers until health issues caused financial stress on the family.  Trevion wanted her story to be different by attending an HBCU where the atmosphere feels like family.  Her goal is to return to her hometown and be part of the answer to social justice issues.
