Black Alumni Association Face Mask

What started off as Negro History Week in 1926 by Dr. Carter G. Woodson, is now an annual month long celebration. During Black History Month, there is a special emphasis on family, education, work ethic, individual responsibility, and entrepreneurship. 

Adding to history, in 2002 the Phyllis C. Bell '75C Scholarship was created, in honor of the founder of the St. John’s University Black Alumni Association. On 2.22.22, we are asking St. John's alumni and friends to make a gift in support of our students as they strive for academic achievement and continue serving as leaders on their path to becoming tomorrow's innovators. 

The campaign will run from February 1, 2022 - February 28, 2022, with a special emphasis on 2.22.22. When you make a gift of $22 or more, you will receive a BAA face mask as a token of our appreciation.*

In 2017, 68 donors raised $2,294 

In 2018, 115 donors raised $4,012 

In 2019, 43 donors raised $1,850 

In 2020, 122 donors raised $4,024

We would be honored for you to join us as we set out to let this year BE THE BIGGEST AND BEST YEAR EVER! Help us show our current St.John's leaders... we believe in them and we support them.
