Give to Black Grad

Since 1982, Black Spartans at San Jose State University have been instrumental in ensuring that there is space and opportunity for Black/African American students to be recognized and celebrated for their accomplishments. Each year in May, we honor our Black undergraduate and graduate students receiving degrees for that calendar year. This year we are celebrating 40 years of Black Excellence at SJSU during the 40th Annual Black Graduation Celebration on Saturday May 28th, 2022. This amazing occasion offers a chance for friends, family, and loved-ones to gather and celebrate all of their student's accomplishments while creating a culturally immersive experience.


We need your help in making the 40th Annual Black Graduation Ceremony a celebration to remember, this a movement towards supporting Black lives; not a moment. Please consider giving to our crowdfunding campaign today to help us raise funds to support ongoing program efforts. Fund a Black student graduating each year!
