To help the Metro DC Chapter of the North Carolina Central University Alumni Association (MDCC-NCCUAA) raise $20,000 to deposit in its scholarship fund established under the NCCU Foundation, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. These scholarship funds are awarded to students from the DC Metropolitan area (DC, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) who attend NCCU and need financial assistance.
Due to the Pandemic of 2020, the April 2020 Scholarship Gala was cancelled, and we were not able to fulfill our financial obligation to the Scholarship Fund. Due to the uncertainty of being able to have an in-person Gala in 2021 because of continuing effects of the pandemic, availability of a safe vaccine, and the comfort level of supporters to gather in large crowds, we are conducting this virtual fundraiser.
WE WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT OF THIS WORTHY CAUSE BY MAKING A FULLY TAX DEDUCTIBLE CONTRIBUTION ON OR BEFORE APRIL 1, 2021.
As most of you know, the cost of a college education is ever increasing and the need for financial assistance will continue. The cost of out-of-state tuition at NCCU is now over $35,000 per year. Even though these are unprecedented times, we do not see this lasting forever. Therefore, as students are eventually able to fully return to college life as we know it, the need for assistance will be even greater because of the impact of unemployment and other economic conditions. Please invest in the future of the students.
