FVSU fundraiser

Speaker announced for FVSU fundraiser
February 6, 2009
Fort Valley State University’s 22nd Annual Black History Month Scholarship Luncheon is February’s hottest ticket in town. Heavyweights in federal, state and local government, education and business attend the power lunch to network with constituents in Middle Georgia and voters look forward to one on one time with them. The high-profile event takes place at noon Monday, Feb. 16, in FVSU’s Health and Physical Education Complex. The guest speaker is U.S. Representative, Chief Deputy Whip and Congressional Black Congress member G. K. Butterfield. The North Carolina representative currently serves on several powerful energy and commerce committees and is best known for successfully litigating Voting Rights lawsuits in eastern North Carolina counties resulting in the court-ordered implementation of district elections for local officials.
The BHMS Luncheon is the university’s largest scholarship fundraiser. So far the event, along with earnings from the university’s endowment fund, has raised more than $1 million in scholarships for deserving students. BHMS planners hope to add to those numbers by setting a goal of $500,000 for scholarships this year.
The university urges donors to give generously. There are several levels of giving. Donors may contribute at the Bronze ($250-$499), Silver ($500-$999), Gold ($1,000 - $4,999), Platinum ($5,000-$7,499), Diamond ($7,000-$9,999) or Corporate ($10,000 or above) level; or contribute by purchasing tickets to the event. Individuals tickets are $50 a person, half-tables (seating of four) are available for $180 and full tables are $360.
All scholarship donations are tax-deductible and earmarked to assist deserving students. For more information, contact the Office of External Affairs at (478) 825-6397.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.


As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
