2016 marks the 140th year of the Prairie View A&M University and a year to remember with the official opening of the Sports Complex and Prairie’ View becoming the 85th All Steinway School in the nation. Though we must say goodbye to this wonderful year, here at the Foundation we believe that 140th year of Prairie View’s outstanding legacy can only pave the way to a brighter future.
November 29th is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the good communities can do when they come together, but we don’t have to wait for the 29th to start doing good. Here at the Prairie View Foundation, we’re looking to make it a year to remember, but we need your help to do it! This year’s year-end goal is to raise $250,000 dollars from now to the end of the year in support of the following campaigns:
We are in the second phase of our fundraising campaign for the Sports Complex, Ascending the Summit. With more than $6 million left to the public portion of the total debt of $61 million, we look to friends and family of the university to bring us one step closer to owning the stadium and ensuring that Prairie View remains a competitive option for generations.Click Here To Give!
For the supporters of our Prairie View’s musical legacy, we are currently 40 percent away from our annual goal of $35,000 for piano maintenance. In an effort to keep our new Steinway pianos in top performance, we need to establish a fund for their maintenance for years to come.Click Here To Give!
Of the 175 applicants, the Marching Storm has been selected to march in the 2017 Macy’s Day Parade. 300 band members will travel to New York at the estimated cost of $1,500 per student. Not only will they be the only school from Texas to march in 2017, but they will also be the only HBCU as well. They have practiced to receive this honor, but they need our help to get there.Click Here To Give!
