Legacy Society

What is the Charles H. Moore Legacy Society?
Established in 2011, the Charles H. Moore Legacy Society was created to recognize and to thank the individuals who have invested in North Carolina A&T State University's future through a planned gift. Moore Society members are vital partners whose generosity sustains a legacy of giving that directly impacts A&T's success as a leading research-intensive, land-grant university.

The legacy society is named in honor of Charles H. Moore, who was instrumental in the founding of the state A&M College for Negro youth, through dedicating his time, talent, and assets to the efforts to bring the college to Greensboro, NC. Through personal contributions and his fundraising efforts, Moore collectively secured a 25 acre site, donations of $8,000, and a bond issue of $7,000, which served as the property and funds necessary to build the first building on the site for the new land-grant college to be known as the College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts for Negro youth. In addition, Prof. Charles H. Moore spent 13 years as Vice President of A&T College and was an invaluable member of the leadership and initial foundation of the school.

The Moore Society pays tribute to Charles H. Moore, while also honoring the many alumni and friends of N.C. A&T who share his vision and commitment to this great university.
