Howard University Receives $5 Million Gift From Black Couple, The Largest-Ever Alumni Donation in its History

Two former Howard University students who fell in love at the famed HBCU have given the educational institution the largest donation from alumni in the school’s history.

Eddie Brown leads Brown Capital Management as its founder, chairman, and chief executive officer. The firm is a Baltimore-based asset management firm, the second oldest African American-owned investment management firm in the U.S.

“I remember a minister of ours said something that we never forgot,” said Eddie Brown. “That those who are blessed should be a blessing to someone, especially those less fortunate. We always remember that. I was blessed to receive my college education debt-free, and I think it’s important to offer those less fortunate the opportunity to do so as well.”
