FedEx gifting $5M to HBCUs in Miss., Tenn.

Three Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in Mississippi and one in Tennessee are getting a nice donation from FedEx.

Wednesday, the shipping company announced a pledge to commit $5 million to Tennessee State University, Jackson State University, Mississippi Valley State University, and LeMoyne-Owen College.

FedEx says each school will receive a $1M donation.

The remaining $1M will be divided among the schools to assist students, faculty, and staff impacted by COVID-19. FedEx says each school will be able to use their discretion on how to use the additional funds.
