Event Description:
In 2019, UNCF will commemorate a 75-year legacy of serving historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and their students with celebrations across the country.  Locally, UNCF will host the 75th Anniversary "A Mind Is..." New England Reception on June 6th honoring those who have contributed so much to advance educational oportunities for young people of color.

Since, 1944, UNCF has assisted more than 460,000 young men and women attain a college degree.  Our 75th Anniversary New England Reception promises to be an exciting evening in celebration of UNCF's member collges and universities, their students and alumni, and our accomplishments.

Most importantly, it is a great opportunity to invest in the future.  Funds raised will help UNCF ensure that more young people with limited financial resources continue to have a pathway to college.
