Words Beats & Life is promoting our 5th annual Divine 9 Scholarship Giving Challenge. Our goal is two fold, to promote scholarship and to raise scholarship funds. This campaign will last 28 days, for the duration of the month of February.
We have created an annual competition that encourages friendly competition among Sorority and Fraternity members of the Divine 9 around philanthropy. This campaign is being coordinated in collaboration with individual chapters and is also being promoted in partnership with members of the organizations as the primary drivers of donor recruitment. We invited people who have had an impact on the work of WBL to create scholarships in their names to put a face to the more than 100 years of service performed by all these organizations.
We set an campaign goal to raise $10,000 in scholarship funds. The first $500 of each scholarship is used to create book scholarships for current and past students of the Words Beats & Life Academy. All additional money are directed by the families of folk who had scholarships named after them, or the people themselves in some cases. We offer scholarships nationally and internationally based on the priorities established by the scholarship committee.
The organization that wins is honored at our annual Breakfast of Champions, which will happen at Busboys and Poets at 14th and Vst NW on March 5th.
