From the Office of the President


Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) are a great source of accomplishment and pride for the African American community, as well as the entire nation.  These institutions provide students with an educational opportunity to learn, in a cultural and professional environment, so they are equipped to become productive citizens who can make a positive impact in the world. Unfortunately, over the years financial support for HBCU’s has dwindled, while the need for educating and equipping African Americans have increased.

NBCA’s mission states that we shall seek to positively impact and influence the spiritual, educational, social, and economic conditions of all humankind.  In keeping with our mission, we are excited to announce our 2nd Annual HBCU Fundraising Campaign!

These particular schools have been selected because for years, NBCA has held seats on the Boards of Florida Memorial University and Morehouse School of Religion. We now also hold Board seats at Simmons College of Kentucky. These HBCU’s are dedicated to education and we ask that you join us in helping to financially bless them, so they can continue to bless our children with the needed education and experiences that HBCU’s provide. Thank you in advance for your support!

Sure of Eternal Life

Dr. Samuel C. Tolbert, Jr.
President, NBCA
