Michael Jordan’s Remarkable Generosity: $1 Million Donation Bolsters Morehouse College Program, Making a Significant Impact

Charlotte Hornets owner, Michael Jordan, extends his philanthropic endeavors to benefit Morehouse College, a prestigious historically black college situated in Atlanta.

Michael Jordan donates $1M to Morehouse College

Last week, Morehouse received a $1 million donation to enhance journalism and sports-related studies at the 154-year all-men’s school.

Jordan originally announced a commitment to donate $100 million “to organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice and greater access to education” in June 2020.

“Morehouse is grateful to Michael Jordan and Jordan Brand for an investment in the education of talented men of color who will ensure there is equity, balance, and truth in the way sports stories are framed and the way the Black experience is contextualized within American history,” said Monique Dozier, vice president for institutional advancement at Morehouse.

The money will help continue to support the journalistic and sports programs originally launched by donations from famed director and film writer, Spike Lee. Lee is also famous for his collaborations with Jordan on Nike Air Jordan commercials.

Jordan’s donation will also help support scholarship, technology, and educational programming initiatives for students attending the Atlanta-based HBCU.

With his latest donation, Jordan reminds us that he’s long since changed the conversation about his lack of activism in the Black community despite being one of the most well-known and influential African-Americans of all-time.
