The Dave Matthews Band has continued to promote charitable organizations by hosting live performance series. The DMB Drive-In concert series this week will take place today, August 12th at 8 PM ET. The performance featured will be Dave Matthews Band plus special guests from their Madison Square Garden performance from November 30, 2018.
This week’s spotlight organization is UNCF, United Negro College Fund. UNCF is the largest education assistance organization serving students of color. United Negro College Fund helps to provide scholarships, funding, and aid to students. UNCF advocates for HBCUs and values their relationships with these historically black colleges and universities.
UNCF advocates for HBCUs and the students they serve are facing severe challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. UNCF has taken huge steps to help students suffering in this crisis by advocating for greater federal funding for HBCUs, and other Minority Serving Institutions by distributing emergency funding, scholarships, and leading efforts to secure online capabilities for HBCUs to deliver coursework.
“We all need to invest our time and effort in supporting better education systems in our communities, creating a college-going culture in the African American community and guiding the young people in our lives toward a better future.”-UNCF
