With the opening of the Virginia Caples Lifelong Learning Institute (VCLLI), AAMU will join the ranks of a sister institution, Hampton University, and become the second historically black college and/or university and the first 1890 land-grant institution in the nation to address this opportunity to celebrate learning and advance the quality of life for one of our richest resources--Alabama’s older adult population. But, we cannot do it without your help. We hope you will consider making a donation to support this worthwhile effort.


Why Become a VCLLI Donor?


Some 10,000 Americans turn 65 every day. By the year 2030, the number of Americans 65 years of age and older will more than double to 71.5 million or 20 percent of the population (about 1 in 5 individuals). Unfortunately, many older minority, underserved, and limited-resource adults are being left behind in the aging process.


Virginia Caples Lifelong Learning Institute (VCLLI) is to close those socioeconomic gaps by providing stimulating, educational, social, and life-enhancing experiences for older adults. The VCLLI will serve as a center to promote research and advocacy for issues that impact older adults, their families and caregivers, as well as provide intergenerational learning opportunities – building upon the current efforts of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System’s Successful Aging Initiative. 


It takes the support of special people like you to bring a dream to fruition.  Won't you join us in raising the first $1 million.  Your tax-deductible contribution will plant the first seeds of what we perceive will be a model learning facility in Alabama.
