Today, the JSU Tiger Fund, literally, dropped off a big check to the tune of $25,000.
Tiger Fund President Robert Cook shared his sentiments on the donation saying: “The Tiger Fund exists solely to support Jackson State University to enable Jackson State to continue its mission of providing educational opportunities and enrichment experiences for young Mississippians and young people from all walks of life and all over the country.”
Organized in 2006, the Tiger Fund is a 501(c)(3) foundation that works in conjunction with the JSU Development Foundation. Membership in the Tiger Fund is open to all supporters.
“Many of us would not have had the opportunity to enjoy the lives and careers that we have been privileged with and blessed to enjoy,” Cook says with pride. “Therefore, we feel it’s our obligation to continue to support the institution that has been so supportive of us all of our life. It’s just a way that we say thank you and how we ensure that opportunities that were afforded to us continue to be afforded to young men and women who are entrusting their future to this fine institution.
