What Is The 1000 HORN$ Campaign?

The 1000 HORN$ Campaign is a commitment from 1,000 alumni and friends of Winston-Salem State University who make an annual contribution of $1000 to the Winston-Salem State University Department of Athletics.

The 1000 HORN$ Campaign serves as the platform for increasing the resources of the WSSU Department of Athletics and can be designated for athletic scholarships, athletic operations or designated to a specific WSSU Athletic team.

Investing In Champions

Caring people invest time, talent, and support in what they believe can make a difference for themselves adn in the lives of others. For nearly a century, the WSSU Department of Athletics has done just that by developing a tradition of producing superb student-athletes. 2010 marked the first year of the 1000 HORN$ Program which was designed to help WSSU fund the future athletic and academic endeavors of our student-athletes.

I'm pleased to say that in just one short year, we have nearly 200 financial members in the 1000 HORN$ Program. We are off to a great start, but we still need your support to reach new heights in 2011 as we strive to reach 1,000 members. Your support will directly help the WSSU Department of Athletics ensure that our past legacy of sports excellence will continue!
