Invest In Our Future

​Every Year

Get involved today!  Together, we can make a difference!

The purpose of this event is to raise scholarship funds for needy and deserving young men in the face of shrinking financial support and tightening budgets at Historically Black Colleges and Universities such as Morehouse College. This year will mark the sixth installment of a fundraising golf tournament sponsored by the Morehouse Alumni of Washington DC and Baltimore MD. Since 2011 this event has raised over $50,000 and helped numerous students finish college. Our funding has primarily come from individual Morehouse Alumni and fellow supporters. 

​The Baltimore Morehouse Alumni Association (BMAA) and the Morehouse College Alumni Association DC Metro Chapter (MCAADC) are pleased to announce the 2016 Morehouse Golf Classic to be held at Lake Presidential Golf Club in Upper Marllboro, MD, on Friday, September 23, 2016.

Through this event, Morehouse Alumni from the Mid Atlantic Region are able to provide Morehouse College with scholarships that will enable more students to benefit from the unique opportunities that Morehouse has afforded African American men since 1867. This is a great investment in our youth and in the future of our great country.  Therefore, we need to raise scholarship funds for needy and deserving young men in the face of the shrinking financial support and tightening budgets at Historically Black Colleges and Universities such as Morehouse College.  This year will mark the sixth installment of a fundraising golf tournament sponsored by the Morehouse Alumni of Washington DC and Baltimore MD. Since 2011 this event has raised over $50,000 and helped numerous students finish college. Our funding has primarily come from individual Morehouse Alumni and fellow supporters.  WE ARE IN NEED OF A MAJOR CORPORATE SPONSOR.

All proceeds from the Morehouse Golf Classic will benefit the Morehouse College Scholarship Fund, as this event is jointly sponsored by the BMAA/DCMAC, which are both registered 501(c) 3 nonprofit organizations.

Let us know how you can help make more Morehouse Men!

The student debt crisis in the United States is escalating and Black college students bear a disproportionate share of that burden, according to a recent analysis. Between 2007 and 2015, college loan debt ballooned from $516 billion to $1.2 trillion, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Between 2014 and 2015 alone, student debt spiked by $75 billion according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Additionally, according to the Federal Reserve, the 90-day delinquency rate among students (11.6 percent) is also higher than all other categories of household debt, including mortgages (2.3 percent) and credit cards (8.2 percent). According to the Reserve, delinquency rates for student loans may actually be about twice as high than stated because at least half of those loans may currently be in deferment, in grace periods or in forbearance. The student debt crisis is particular severe among African-American college students, according to a new report by NerdWallet, a consumer education website. Both the percentage of Black students who accumulate debt and their average loan amounts are climbing more quickly than for other students, the report concluded.
