Raising Canes Announces Partnership With Southern University With $1 Million Donation
This morning, Southern University announced  $1 million partnership with Raising Cane’s. The donated money will go to funding the university’s academic and athletic programs as well as the Human Jukebox Band.  A portion of the donation includes an endowed academic scholarship.

Typically, when an endowed scholarship is given to a school, the donated money is invested. The school never withdraws any of the principal; only the interest earned from that donation is used to fund scholarships.

Graves told reporters, ” The school needs scholarships quite a bit, so I want to be able to help support them, their athletics, and the jukebox band. They needed some new equipment, they needed some new uniforms. So, it’s the pride of Southern University, which is one of the prides of Baton Rouge. And so I’m just glad to be a part of it.”
