Requesting Donations for Student Scholarships

As alumni of Florida A&M University, and members of the SoCal Alumni Chapter, we like to keep you informed about what’s going on with the current group, and we’d also ask that you help support our chapter. California students who are presently enrolled at FAMU and who will be enrolling in the fall greatly benefit from our support and your financial support is integral to the continued success of our organization and students. We urgently need your help and support.


Over the past 26 years, the SoCal alumni chapter has given many scholarships to deserving California high school seniors who were accepted and enrolled in FAMU, and also California students who were already enrolled. We normally raise funds by having our annual luncheons in February, including Black History events at the Ebony Repertory Theatre with the Kinsey’s and donations from members and friends of FAMU. 


Unfortunately, we were not able to have the luncheon again this year (2018) and regrettable did not make enough funding during the Kinsey event to adequately support our scholarship program.   


This is where you can help. Our major goal is to continue giving scholarships to deserving students. We would greatly appreciate a financial donation of $100.00, $50.00, $25.00 or any amount that you can afford to help fund scholarships for our students.  You can write a check payable to FAMU Alumni Association, mailed to Arthur Davis, Treasurer at 6013 Broken Arrow Street, Simi Valley, CA 93063, or pay online at www.LARattlers.org if that is more convenient for you.


If you have any question, please contact Audrey Gilchrist-Roach at Audreyjacq@aol.com or Arthur Davis at Adavis3584@aol.com.


Again, checks can be mailed to:
