2024 UNCF Mayor’s Luncheon – Cleveland

We regret to inform you that due to unforeseen circumstances, it has become necessary to postpone the UNCF Cleveland Mayor’s Luncheon originally scheduled to take place on Feb. 2, 2024.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time. We remain committed to delivering a successful and memorable event, and we look forward to welcoming you in the near future.

Stay tuned for future updates.


In celebration of the 80th anniversary of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), we proudly present to you the 3rd annual Cleveland Mayor’s Luncheon. This event will unite over 500 civic and business leaders, education professionals, and guests from all across Ohio with the shared objective of advancing our community.

The 2024 Mayor’s Luncheon is an event dedicated to providing crucial financial support and awareness to UNCF’s mission. UNCF positively transforms lives by enabling students from underrepresented communities to access a college education – a gateway to fulfilling careers, engaged citizenship, and service to our nation.

Over the past 80 years, UNCF has been able to help successfully graduate students, most of whom come from households earning less than $43,000 per year. With $100 million allocated towards scholarships, these students can attend more than 1,100 schools nationwide, including a notable network of 37 HBCUs. This enables them to focus solely on their education instead of worrying about their financial backgrounds.

Despite the significant strides that UNCF has made, there is still a long way to go. We remain committed to creating opportunities for more students from similar economic backgrounds to access higher education. As an esteemed member of our community, we would like to invite you to join us in this noble mission. Your support as a partner, is an investment in building a workforce of teachers, business leaders, attorneys, and potentially the next mayor of Cleveland.

Thank you for your unwavering support of UNCF, its students, and the colleges it serves. Your dedication is the catalyst for the advancement of our community. Together, we are actively making a difference, steering towards a brighter future for all.
