WHY SUPPORT THIS VIRTUAL FUNDRAISER
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 DECEMBER 15, 2020, SO WE CAN MAKE SURE IT REACHES THE FOUNDATION IN 2020. If you cannot make a contribution by this date, please make a contribution by April 1, 2021.
You can also make your check/money order payable to the NCCU Foundation, Inc. In the memo line specify MDCC Scholarship Fund #T01461. Mail to: MDCC-NCCUAA, P.O. Box 1508, Washington, DC 20013. Attn: Monica Perry.
