Tuskegee University has made the top ten list of Historically Black Colleges/Universities with a high rate of alumni donations.
Tuskegee alums have given $1,302,252.84 in donations since July 2013, according to the university's Office of Development and Alumni Affairs. That's an average of 23 percent in donations while the average donation rate is less than ten percent.
"It is of crucial importance that alumni giving be sustained. Regarding alumni giving, we feel that it should not be viewed as a trend, but a lifestyle tradition," said E. La'Shaun Seay, the office's interim associate vice president.
Tuskegee ranked number four overall on the top ten list.
