The “A Mind Is…”® Gala recognizes the extraordinary work of corporations, individuals, and HBCU faculty who have significantly contributed to UNCF’s work to improve the educational outcomes of African American and other minority students who deserve a quality, affordable college education.

In 2024, UNCF will celebrate 80 years of Black Excellence, community, and student support, and education advocacy.
