Nathaniel R. Causley, Jr.
Southern University alum and H&R Block District Manager, Nathaniel R. Causley, Jr. has a great deal to say about his alma mater. The 1985 philosophy major is thankful for his experiences at Southern University and firmly believes that "GIVING BACK" is key.
"Southern University instilled in me a sense of GIVING BACK both my time and money to support Historically Black Colleges and Universities in fulfilling their mission to graduate the BEST that this nation has to offer."
Causley saw an opportunity to leverage his Southern University connection with H&R Block. Today, the H&R Block Nonprofit Partnership Program with the Southern University System Foundation is a reality.
H&R Block will contribute $20 to the Southern University System Foundation for each alumnus or University supporter who has taxes prepared through H&R Block tax preparation services as a new client.
"This partnership is historical and the Southern University System Foundation can lead the way for other HBCUs throughout the country to join and benefit from our program. We’re excited to embark on this unique partnership and establish a continuous funding source that will benefit the Southern University System Foundation for years to come.”
Causley supports Southern University and is grateful for the education and guidance he received as a student. "It was 29 years ago when I walked across the stage at the "Minidome" to receive my degree in philosophy. I owe Southern University a lot! The University gave me my foundation and an opportunity to grow within a system dedicated to seeing their students succeed in the real world. In my wildest dreams, I never imagined that I would return to Baton Rouge and rekindle lifelong friendships that were essential to my soul and give back to my alma mater."
