Give Today to Empower Tomorrow's Visionaries

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, no 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.

Your gift of $350 can send a Leaders of Tomorrow® student to the annual LOT® Leadership Summit

Your gift of $1,500 can help an undergraduate or graduate student member to attend our annual conference to meet with prospective employers at the Career Expo

Your gift of $5,000 can help us develop a webinar for our NBMBAA Career Success Network® 


The National Black MBA Association® is dedicated to helping our members pursue higher education at all levels—undergraduate, graduate and doctorate. Your support for scholarships can help our student members to pursue their academic dreams as well as bridge the gap between our pipeline of talent from high school students to experienced professionals.

We ask that you join us in ensuring our best and brightest students have the opportunity to begin and complete their higher educational pursuits; consider contributing to one or more of the scholarships detailed below or creating an annual or endowed scholarship with NBMBAA® .

Your gift of $5,000 can provide an annual scholarship to assist an undergraduate or graduate student member

Corporate Partner Scholarship Program

The National Black MBA Association® Corporate Partner Scholarship program is supported by donations from our corporate partners who are committed to cultivating the next generation of business leaders. Each year, the Association invites corporate sponsors to collaborate with us as we endeavor to expand educational opportunity for students across the nation. Each year, sponsor’s generous investments will provide them the unique opportunity to meet and engage with scholarship awardees at our Annual Conference and Exposition*. The NBMBAA® will disclose the final awardees in the final weeks leading up to Conference.


Leaders of Tomorrow® Endowed Scholarship Fund

With a goal of reaching $1 Million by 2020, the NBMBAA Leaders of Tomorrow® Endowed Scholarship will provide academic scholarships to the winners of the NBMBAA Case Competition® at the annual LOT® Leadership Summit. Members of the winning team will receive scholarship funds for their stellar performances. Prizes will be awarded to the top three performing teams, for a collective award of $30,000. The fund is currently 45 percent towards its goal!

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.
