Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) Inaugural Day of Giving, “1887 Strikes,” is an 1,887-minute giving campaign devoted to supporting FAMU. It will help to remove financial barriers, which will allow our students to continue to receive a quality education.



The Campaign

We are asking you to support FAMU Cares, the University’s emergency fund to support students during times of crisis. FAMU Cares provides financial relief for students in the areas of housing, food insecurity and technology. Additionally, we are asking you to support the FAMU National Alumni Association Save Our Students Fund (NAA SOS) and the Rattler Athletic Fund. The NAA SOS Fund was established to provide retention scholarships for graduating students in need of financial support to make it across the finish line and the Rattler Athletic Fund provides the financial resources that makes the athletic mission possible through scholarships, academic services, facilities, operational support and by hiring championship caliber coaches. Our students in all colleges and schools are counting on you to support “1887 Strikes” by making your donation during the 1887 minutes between April 30 and May 1, 2020.
