NAFEO receives generous contribution from the “Tithe the Tithe” program of the Alfred Street Baptist Church of Alexandria, Virginia.
Alfred Street Baptist Church “Tithe the Tithes” Program:
Alfred Street Baptist Church is in a class of its own in “Walking the Word.” Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley and the Alfred Street Baptist Church have unparalleled children, youth, family, entrepreneurship, and education ministries. Alfred Street Baptist Church has grown its education ministries and service entities into national models, and established a comprehensive pipeline for preparing, inspiring, and connecting students and families with college and opportunity. The focused, strategic hard work, sacrificial giving, and love of Alfred Street is moving hundreds of thousands of both traditional and non-traditional students, thorough college preparation, entry, retention, and completion. Alfred Street has always been an important sustaining benefactor of many HBCUs, but at especially tremendous levels during Katrina, the Great Recession, the Parent Plus Loan debacle, during the height of state disengagement from investments in. higher education, and during this season of coronavirus and its attendant losses. In this year alone, Alfred Street supported NAFEO, Dillard University, Paul Quinn College, Virginia State University, Howard University, other colleges and universities, as well as associations lifting children, youth, students, and adults, and supporting entrepreneurs in many and varied transformative ways. In several instances Alfred Street paid off the student debt at HBCUs to free students to complete, and compete in the marketplace, labor force, service corps, educator corps, entrepreneurship corps, diplomatic corps, and public safety corps, unhindered by student debt. Reverend Dr. Howard-John Wesley and the Alfred Street Baptist Church of Alexandria, VA are engaged in northern Virginia and around the globe in untold strategic, affirmative actions to supplement their faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge. The NAFEO Nation/HBCU Family and extended Circle of Friends are inestimably grateful to Alfred Street Baptist Church. of Alexandria, Virginia.
