Click here to support Help HBCU students go to Israel organized by Travis Brown

Dear JAANC Members and Supporters,

Please join JAANC in supporting two young men fighting to make their dream a reality!

The TAVtech Fellowship Program is an intensive 5-week winter Coding and Entrepreneurship Fellowship in Tel Aviv, Israel that is typically only accessible to Ivy League students.

However, this year, Travis Brown and Whitney Griffith will be the first historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) students and first Caribbean students to ever be in TAVTech BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP.

TAVtech is heavily subsidized but they still have expenses such as airfare, every day food and transportation cost and other personal expenses throughout the program.

With your help they will be able to get to TAVTech and bring to their campus and the Caribbean the impact and insights they have gained.

Their goal is to get 350 persons to donate at least $20. You can help them get to TAVtech by contributing how much ever you can to our campaign or even just spreading the word via LinkedIn, Twitter, Snapchat, IG stories, Facebook.

Over 1000 of you will receive this e-news. If each of you give $20, they will reach their goal

If you wish to donate directly to them,
Phone number for BOA Zelle: (410) 776-9111
Cashapp: $travxm
The money would be directly stored in a separate BOA saving bank account until it's time for the program.
