We will have donuts, coffee and RAFFLE to raise funds for “75 for 75”, 75 students will receive $5,000 to celebrate the 75th Anniversary. If you’re downtown, we are asking you to please help us by sending the save the date to your colleagues and to come down to the Plaza to help us pass out flyers and man the “Giving Table”.

This day is a National Day of Giving to get more deserving students to and through college. Please help us change the life trajectory of students in need and build our next generation of American leaders. Since its founding, UNCF has more than doubled the number of minorities attending college. In 75 years, we’ve helped nearly half a million students earn college degrees. Together, we can help half a million more. UNCF raises funds to provide operating support to 37 private HBCUs. HBCUs generate $14.8 billion to the national economy and 134,090 jobs to their local and regional economies. As a champion for quality education for all, UNCF is calling on you—to help us raise vitally needed funds, so together, we can send more students to and through college. By 2019, Millennials will number 73 million, making them the largest generation in America. Today, join UNCF in committing to making them the best-educated. What better investment could there be?
