Why We Give

Our Tournament is in October which is Domestic Violence Awareness month. We give to supporting charities and programs to aid victims and raise awareness.

According to a study published in 2022, in the Lancet medical journal, more than 1 in 4 women in the world have experienced domestic violence in their lifetimes, according to a study published Wednesday.

The study, in the Lancet medical journal, used statistics from the World Health Organization’s global database on the prevalence of violence against women from before the coronavirus pandemic, 2000 to 2018.

It found that 27 percent of those ages 15 to 49 had experienced physical or sexual violence by intimate long-term partners.

“Intimate partner violence affects the lives of millions of women, children, families and societies worldwide,” the study’s senior author, Claudia García-Moreno, a WHO public health researcher, said in a statement.

As the majority of our committee members are HBCU alumni we hope to support the students and institutions.

Thousands have made similar calculations in the past two years, flocking to prominent HBCUs. Morgan State, North Carolina A&T State, Prairie View A&M and Howard universities have reported surging enrollment during the pandemic — at a time when student head counts nationwide have slumped. Historically Black colleges and universities also gained huge visibility through the election of Vice President Harris, a graduate of Howard, and are drawing high-profile student-athletes and unprecedented gifts from billionaires.
