While our vision is to provide a networking opportunity for Black Alums from the BIG 10 institutions, it is equally importan to host a community service event to serve the next generation of college bound students here in the Chicagoland area by holding our own version of a “Trunk Party” on Thursday, July 28, 2022.

Many of our area youth will be heading off to college this fall. Many will have scholarships or grants to help pay for tuition, housing, and other major expenses. However, many will have very little money left to cover necessities. Our mission is to obtain these much-needed resources to provide our college bound youth with the supplies they need to make their transition from home to the dorm room as smooth as possible, and this is where your support is needed.

BANboree, NFP is a 501(c)3 federal tax-exempt charity, and we are asking for your support in the form of supplies, in-kind Gifts, or monetary donations to help us achieve our goal of providing basic needs to as many of our college bound youth as possible.

We would appreciate any contribution you can make. No donation is too small. We would also gladly provide documentation for verification and your records if needed.

We would like to secure all donations by July 11, 2022. All monetary donations can be submitted by clicking the button below. Please contact us at [email protected] to arrange pick up of in-kind donations.
