Tuskegee University Receives $20 Million Gift From Anonymous Donor


Tuskegee University is pleased to announce that it has received a $20 million gift to support the University’s STEM programs and a variety of campus enhancements from an anonymous donor. 

This is the second $20 million gift the university has received in less than four years. This donation will support a faculty leadership position, and an endowed scholarship, enhance on-campus student affairs and campus security staffing, develop STEM programs and applied research, and match our UNCF endowment fund. 

“This gift will allow us to invest in our students, faculty, programs and infrastructure, enabling us to enhance our academic reputation, enrich the student experience, and continue our work to reach milestones within our strategic plan,” said Dr. Charlotte P. Morris, Tuskegee University president.

“It will provide additional resources for us to implement vital initiatives, further securing the campus, and fostering a more dynamic community.”
