The Claflin Fund




I am Ja’Cori Morton, a senior human performance recreation major

with a minor in psychology from Summerville, S.C. As a student, I am reaching

out to you to share my Claflin experience and to inform you of

how your support has personally impacted me. 


I would like to begin by expressing my gratitude for the significant

impact that you have had on our university. I am a third-generation

Claflinite who has always had the dream of continuing the family

legacy of attending Claflin University. However, this would not

have been possible without the support of donors like you.


Because of the scholarship I have received, I have been able to focus

on my studies without the burden of financial strain. This has led

to opportunities such as becoming a member of the following

organizations: NAACP, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.,

and National Society of Leadership and Success.


However, 80 percent of my peers have not been afforded this

opportunity. This is why I am writing to request your generous

support in our annual fundraising campaign – The Claflin Fund.


Our university's growth and progress depend, in large part,

on the contributions from supporters. Your donations can have

a profound impact on our institution, allowing Claflin University

to continue providing a world class education and creating

opportunities for future generations of students like me.


Your support can help provide scholarship funds to deserving

students to complete their goal of graduation. Additionally, your

support can help complete what will be the heart of Claflin University,

the New Student Center which will help improve campus life for students.


Remember, your contribution, no matter the size,

can have a lasting impact on our university's continued success.


Once again, thank you for your dedication to Claflin University.

Your continued involvement and generosity truly exemplify

the spirit of the Claflin Magic. Together, we can ensure that

future generations of students have the same transformative

educational opportunities that I have been privileged to receive.


Thank you for considering my request, and please accept my

warmest wishes for your continued success and well-being.


With Panther Pride,

JaCori Morton
