2022 UNCF National “A Mind Is…”® Gala – Washington, DC

We welcome you back! Join us for this year’s in-person event as we mark the 78th year of the annual UNCF National “A Mind Is…”® Gala! This exclusive fundraising and social event focuses on raising awareness of the need and benefits of a college education, the students UNCF serves and the contributions of historically Black colleges and universities.

Hosted by generous national and local corporate sponsors, professional organizations and individual supporters, the National AMI Gala is an evening of celebration attended by national celebrities, civic leaders, alumni, dignitaries, volunteers and friends of UNCF.

Don’t miss this evening of fun that supports UNCF’s mission of investing in better futures for the young men and women we serve and by helping them move to and through college.

For the safety of our guests, UNCF will monitor and adhere to recommended CDC, DC and hotel guidelines. In addition, for entry, we will ask attendees to show a government-issued ID and proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative/undetected lab-based COVID-19 test taken within 3 days (72 hours) before the event. We will also require that masks be worn at all times, with the exception of eating or drinking (maximum seating capacity is 8 persons per table).
