The Tom Joyner FoundationŽ provides financial assistance to students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Since 1998, The Tom Joyner Foundation has raised more than $55 Million Dollars to help students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities stay in school. The Tom Joyner Foundation also hosts an annual cruise named the Fantastic Voyage which raises money for the HBCUs.

As Tom Joyner, Jr., the Foundation's President/CEO, stated, "The Tom Joyner Foundation only does one thing...It helps students continue their education at Black Colleges. All too often a student will get into college, and then encounter financial difficulties that will force them to drop out. The Foundation provides money directly to the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) for the purpose of helping these students stay in college."

Tony Rose, Publisher/CEO, of Phoenix, AZ based Amber Communications Group, Inc. (ACGI) and the Executive Director of The African American Pavilion at BookExpo America began Quality Press in 2000 in order to accommodate authors who wished to self-publish their books. Amber Books Publishing, the corporation's first imprint, was founded in 1998 and has become established as the nation's largest African-American publisher of self-help and career-guide book titles written by and for African Americans. Mr. Rose responded to the needs of the growing market of self-publishers and placed the Quality Press division under the direction of Yvonne Rose, who is also an Associate Publisher for Amber Books and Director of Quality Press.

Yvonne Rose stated, "We are delighted with the opportunity and pleased that the Tom Joyner Foundation, Inc. has selected Quality Press, Amber Books and Independent Publishers Group to handle the production, manufacturing, publishing and distribution of their new literary venture Tom Joyner Presents How To Prepare For College."
