Giving Opportunities

The National Black MBA Association® promotes educational and economic growth for black professionals. Our member’s needs—and our desire to make resources available to them—are growing. By expanding our initiatives, we can reach more students and professionals. However, funding required to meet these needs has become increasingly limited.

Your gift, not matter the amount, will go a long way in helping us achieve our mission to serve black professionals. We invite you to explore the amazing opportunities that the National Black MBA Association® offers and invest in our organization and its important role in sustaining black professionals’ access to educational and business resources.

Business Fund for Excellence

The National Black MBA Association’s® Business Fund for Excellence offers funding for tools and resources that lead to the creation of educational and wealth building opportunities for our members, which enhances their professional and personal development and growth. Gifts to this fund provide flexible resources to support the immediate needs of the Association.

Bakari Henderson Memorial Scholarship

The NBMBAA® formed the Bakari Henderson Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor the memory of one of our former student members. This educational scholarship fund aims to motivate future leaders to take advantage of every educational opportunity that allows them the exposure of studying abroad. We seek to honor Bakari and his passion for living the fullest life and seeking every educational opportunity afforded to him by awarding a student(s) with financial support to participate in a study abroad program while attending a 4-year college.

Lloyd Trotter Scholarship Fund

Lloyd Trotter was one of the key founders of General Electric’s first corporate affinity group, the African American Forum, and was the first African American officer at GE. Despite the demands of his successful career, Lloyd always found time to give back to the community and help minorities in GE by redirecting “people of color so they have a better shot at winning the game.” This scholarship was the brainchild of Mr. Trotter and the African American Forum of GE. For more than 15 years, current and former employees of GE have contributed to the scholarship. Like Lloyd and other GE employees, anyone that shares the same distinct values of integrity, hard work and community service are encouraged to contribute.
