Help us to make a difference for a half million more.
On March 5, 2020, UNCF will hold the 76th National “A Mind Is…” Gala, the occasion during which UNCF pays national tribute to those who have contributed significantly to opening the doors to college for underrepresented youth. Honorees include prominent, world-renowned public and private sector leaders. The 1,200 projected guests include all 37 presidents of the UNCF-member colleges and universities, dignitaries, and a host of other renowned individuals.
Over more than 75 years, UNCF has raised nearly $5 billion dollars and helped to graduate a half million students. Each year, UNCF awards tens of millions of dollars in scholarships to deserving students. Yet, the rising cost of tuition and decreasing federal and state financial aid have caused increasing numbers of students to apply to UNCF for assistance. We are only able to support one in ten scholarship applicants. As an organization, as a nation, we must and can do more.
Over the next quarter-century, UNCF is redoubling its commitment to education for all and challenging philanthropists, public and private sector leaders, and communities to increase their investments in our nation’s greatest resource—our youth.
Today, Millennials number 73 million, making them the largest generation in America. On March 5, let us commit to making them the best-educated generation in America.
