2017 “A Mind Is…” Summer Reception - Martha’s Vineyard

Please join us this summer on Martha's Vineyard to hear about the work UNCF Boston does every day to help area students. This will be an occasion when UNCF and its supporters, many of whom spend their summers on The Island, will gather to attend this elegant summer fundraiser. We look forward to welcoming an array of influential individuals and connecting them to the mission of UNCF, which is to build a robust and nationally recognized pipeline of underrepresented students who become highly qualified college graduates. 

This event is by invitation only. Contact UNCF Boston for details.

Tickets are $150. Sponsorship opportunities are available.

Martha's Vineyard has been called the Black Hamptons, a place where for generations black people have owned cottages and pastel Victorian houses with wide porches and screen doors that slap in the wind. Martha’s Vineyard thrives with intellectual stimulation, the summer tradition of self-improvement. Each summer in August, vacationers leave the beach and flock to afternoon lecture series, private receptions, and film festivals.—Washington Post
