Chairman’s Letter On behalf of the Staff and Board of Directors, I am pleased to present the 2010 Annual Financial Report. The report provides a comprehensive picture of the Tom Joyner Foundation's finances for the 2010 fiscal year and a snapshot of important issues concerning our future. More than ever, the Tom Joyner Foundation is committed to the future of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. HBCUs continue to play an important part of educating our nation’s youth and producing future doctors, lawyers, business executives, scientists and philanthropists. Even as the country is working its way out of one of its toughest economic periods in decades, the Foundation has been working with HBCUs around the country in various ways through programs, scholarships and capacity building.


You know HBCUs are close to my heart. Every time I speak at a commencement, I am thrilled to get the hugs from students, parents, Aunties, Momos and PawPaws who are thankful, tearful and full of pride to have a college graduate. That’s why this 12-year-old Foundation is forever appreciative to the thousands of donors who have supported us, and as a result the students, faculty and administrators at these HBCUs. Look, I know this economy is taking its toll on so many of us, but I remain driven to make sure our beloved HBCUs are here today – and tomorrow. It may seem cliché, but James Weldon Johnson said it best in his poem, Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing, and what has become known as the Black national anthem: Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us, Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us; Facing the rising sun of our new day begun, Let us march on till victory is won. So, no matter what anyone says, the Tom Joyner Foundation will invest in programs that will continue to produce scholars, athletes, politicians, corporate executives – in short, game changers. That’s right, students who will make a difference in whatever field they enter. I know that graduates of HBCUs get an experience that’s enriching, nurturing and confidence-building. That’s the foundation of success. Now, and well into the future, the Foundation will help arm the next generation of leaders with the tools they need to succeed. Yours truly

Tom Joyner , Chairman

President’s Letter To Our Valued Supporters: The Tom Joyner Foundation is extremely grateful to your support of our steadfast mission to support Historically Black Colleges and Universities through scholarships, capacity building and special programs. Despite one of the most challenging fundraising years ever, the Foundation focused its efforts on several key initiatives while at the same time developing a strategy to adapt to the unstable economic climate. During the year, we (1) Assisted HBCUs as part of our ‘Schools of the Month’ program; (2) Helped keep black males in college and (3) Offered capacity building to help HBCUs develop sustaining fundraising campaigns; and (4) Raised in excess of $7 million. In 2010, the Foundation worked with a streamlined staff and budget to survive a difficult economy that has been playing havoc with philanthropies all around the country. If anything, we intensified our efforts to seek out new corporate and individual donors from a broader number of sources.


For our programs, we awarded a Full Ride Scholarship to our third student - Cheyenne Boyce – from Detroit, Michigan, who is currently at Spelman College. Cheyenne, along with the previous Full Ride Scholars - had to have a 3.5 GPA, a 1300 on the SAT (Math and Verbal Only) and/or a minimum ACT score of 28. The Full Ride scholars receive full tuition waivers and stipends to cover room and board (on campus only) and books. To renew the scholarship for up to 10 semesters, the scholar is expected to keep a 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) and 15 credit hours per semester. As part of its on-going commitment to increasing the number of black males in college, the Foundation awarded nearly $80,000 to 52 Hercules Scholars, named after our late Board Member and my Grandfather Hercules Joyner, and remained an integral part of the Foundation's efforts to retain the number of black males attending college. The 11th Annual Fantastic Voyage™ successfully sailed out of Galveston, Texas to provide nearly 4,000 guests the ultimate ‘Party with a Purpose’, sailing to Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. As we look forward, the Foundation is evaluating its programs, and is developing a plan to better serve the needs of HBCUs in new and exciting ways. We’re planning to build off our legacy of helping to keep students in school, but also: • Strengthen the capacity building for all of our HBCUs, • Introduce new programs that will broaden HBCU students’ educational experiences • Provide more tools to enable supporters and donors to engage with the Foundation • Identify new sources of grants and strategic partnerships Now, more than ever, the Foundation believes that HBCUs can play a critical role in preparing the next generation of students to compete more aggressively in this fast-paced, ever-changing world.

Thomas Joyner, Jr, President

2010 School of the Month Program The School of the Month Program is the signature program of the Foundation. Annually, the Foundation selects 11 Historically Black Colleges and Universities with which to partner. During the partnership, we raise funds in support of student scholarships and educational programs. Hercules Scholarship Male Student Support Program In addition to those features each week, we award our Hercules Scholarship to a deserving male student attending one of our selected HBCUs. This scholarship, named after Tom Joyner’s late father, Hercules L. Joyner, embodies and celebrates male students attending HBCUs. Students selected must have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher and be actively involved in community service and leadership on their campuses. 4

Drive One for Your HBCU In partnership with Ford Motor Company, the Tom Joyner Foundation launched Drive One for Your HBCU. The partnership challenged HBCU alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends to conduct test drives at local dealerships in support of their alma maters and favorite HBCUs. For every test drive a $25 donation was made to the Foundation up to $250,000. In addition to launching a tour in the fall of 2009 at various HBCU campuses test drives were also conducted at the 2010 Tom Joyner Family Reunion. 5

Scholarships will be awarded to HBCU students who major in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) with the funds from this initiative.

2010 Art With a Purpose Annually, the Tom Joyner Foundation hosts “Art with a Purpose” on board the Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage. “Art with a Purpose” features internationally acclaimed African-American artist and galleries from across the nation. Passengers have an opportunity to view the work of our featured artist and galleries through out the week. Private sales, live and silent auctions are held and proceeds from art sold on the ship benefit Foundation programs and initiatives. This art experience is also an opportunity to educate our supporters about the long history of art at Historically Black Colleges and Universities combined with how to build a modern collection combining old with new. 6

Along with these events, the Foundation hosts an art seminar for passengers from the novice and to the most seasoned collectors. Seminars discuss topics such as, building your art collection, storing your collection properly and appraising your collection.

Full Ride Scholarship The Tom Joyner Foundation Full Ride Scholarship is awarded to high school seniors who will be attending a Historically Black College or University. This highly competitive scholarship annually draws the best and the brightest students from across the nation to apply. Students must have a grade point average of 3.5 or higher, at least 1300 on the SAT and/or a minimum ACT score of 28. Students are also required to write a 350-word essay on the topic – “What has been the most impressionable moment in your life and why?” This year, thousands of applicants were screened and ten finalists were chosen and invited to Atlanta, Georgia for a panel interview with Tom Joyner and other judges from the media.


Full Ride scholarship

The third Tom Joyner Full Ride Scholarship was awarded to Cheyenne Boyce of Detroit, Michigan. Cheyenne was ranked No. 1 at Detroit’s highly competitive Cass Technical High School. She plays the cello and is interested in international relations and the environment. Cheyenne will use the scholarship to attend Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia.

Teacher Quality Program For five years, the Tom Joyner Foundation has partnered with the National Education Association to improve the quality of teaching skills in public school systems in urban and rural school districts throughout the nation with our Teacher Quality Program. The program focuses on preparing educators for national certification exams by providing funding and technical support for workshops, coursework materials, individual tutoring, and examination fees to prepare educators to pass state licensing examinations.


The Tom Joyner Foundation has contributed $1.8 million to the project and the National Education Association has provided more than $2 million in support. Since the program started over 5,400 applicants have been screened, and 3,286 students have been accepted since 2005. Photo credit: Hampton University

Through our efforts with our partner schools the partnership has an 89% success rate in educators passing the state licensing exams. Teacher Quality Partner Schools • • • • • • • •
