When you give to the African American Cultural Center, you impact the entire campus community. Your partnership gives us the ability to facilitate efforts to ensure opportunity, equity and inclusion for the students who rely on our services.
The African American Cultural Center is a place of care, a home away from home. The AACC provides a space of support for our students and helps them succeed at NC State and experience positive post-college outcomes. We do this through strategic programs and events, relationship building and the provision of timely resources to support students’ critical needs.

Witherspoon Memorial Fund
The African American Cultural Center celebrates the long legacy of Dr. Augustus Witherspoon and recognizes our legacy is bound with his. Dr. Witherspoon co-created a space for Black, African American and African students to engage in learning while demonstrating bravery and camaraderie. Today, we catalyze Dr. Witherspoon’s vision in the creation of a harbor space where “individualism and community are equally prized" (Toliver, 2022, pp. 45) and we can feel valued.
Your contributions help maintain the African American Cultural Center facilities, including a center with study spaces, an art gallery, a library and a large meeting space, thereby preserving the legacy of Dr. Augustus Witherspoon, for whom our building is named.
