Gibson pledged $100,000 to Voltron Travel as a first step in the partnership. This was based on a percentage from net sales.
The collaboration will also offer a unique opportunity to impact HBCU students’ classroom experiences. Select students from the Black College Community will be able to receive a “Back-to-School Success Kit”, which includes school supplies, gear, travel vouchers, and other useful items.
“We salute Tyrese Gibson, Voltron Travel for their dedication to the Black College Community,” Betsy Burton-Strunk, Vice President of Development at TMCF, stated. “Finding partners who share our values is a top priority for TMCF as well as the students we serve. Voltron Travel is dedicated to education and serving its communities, just like TMCF. We share these values and look forward to the wonderful things that will result from their engagement with TMCF.
TMCF member schools include America’s publicly supported Historically Black Colleges and Universities, (HBCUs), and Predominantly Millionaire Black Institutions, (PBIs). TMCF is the largest national organization representing only Black College Community students.
