Empower Future Leaders: Support the AAABSE

Donation protected
Our Mission and History
Join us in making a difference in the lives of deserving African American
students by supporting the Austin Area Alliance of Black School Educators
(AAABSE) Scholarship Fund. With a rich history of dedication to improving the
educational achievements of Austin-area children since 1996, AAABSE has been
tirelessly working to provide social and instructional support for African
American students, staff, and families.

Scholarship Impact
Over the past 27 years, AAABSE has awarded more than 120 scholarships, with
recent awards amounting to $1,000 per student. These scholarships have
empowered young minds, creating opportunities for growth and success.
However, we want to do even more.

Our Goal
By raising $20,000, we aim to provide 20 deserving students with $1,000
scholarships at our next AAABSE banquet or reception. But we can't do it
without your help.

Measuring Success
Your generous contribution will not only support these students’ education but
also, help us measure the impact of the scholarship fund on their lives and the
community through planned case studies. These studies will examine statistical
correlations among selected students' high school performances, college
records, and post-graduate successes.

Get Involved
Apart from donating to the scholarship fund, you can get involved with AAABSE
by joining us via our online link (, attending quarterly meetings,
and participating in our AAABSE Summer Institute.

Tax-Deductible Donations
All donations are tax-deductible, and we'll keep you informed about the
campaign's progress and the impact of your contributions through our quarterly
newsletters, AAABSE website, and scheduled events.

Join Us
Together, we can empower future leaders and contribute to the long-term goals
of AAABSE. Let's join hands and make a difference in the lives of these
deserving students. Your support today will create a brighter tomorrow for them
and the community.
