2022 UNCF Virtual “A Mind is…”® Gala – California

Three Cities. One Night. One Party.


UNCF California Regional Leadership Councils invite you to the UNCF California 2nd Virtual “A Mind Is…”® Gala.

UNCF has re-imagined their most popular event to an engaging and interactive virtual experience that you do not want to miss. This year, three major cities—Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco—and extra bonus programming from Washington D.C. will come together on this special night to celebrate our nation’s HBCU institutions and students. Just imagine a party in your home, dressed as you are, no traffic and a dinner of your choice…. a night you cannot re-imagine!

UNCF California “A Mind Is…”® Gala is a premier fundraising gala and major social event for the western region focusing 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 a diverse group of corporate sponsors, local businesses and professional organizations, the California “A Mind Is…”® Gala will be an evening of celebration attended by local and national celebrities, civic leaders, alumni, dignitaries, volunteers and friends of UNCF. This must-attend virtual event is full of excitement, engaging, interactive fun; while supporting 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.

California “A Mind Is…”® Gala will recognize the extraordinary contributions of “Individuals of the Year” and “Corporations of The Year,” supporters who have exemplified significant contributions of time, talent and resources to support UNCF’s mission and work throughout the years. You will also have the opportunity to hear from HBCU scholarship recipients, donors and last but not least live entertainment from a professional recording artist.
