2021 Annual Event
The mission of University Academy Foundation (UAF) is to facilitate educational programs and opportunities that support college readiness, college completion, and career success for University Academy students and alumni.
Why an Annual Event?
Thanks to the funds raised from our annual event, programs such as Summer Camp for middle school students, Summer Study Abroad for high school students as well as both the College Incentive Program and Career Acceleration Program are available to all UA alumni at no cost. These are just a few of the essential programs we fund and manage which play a large role in closing the opportunity gap for UA students and alumni.
About the Event
UAF is thrilled to announce Erika and David Dickey as Event Chairs! Erika and David have given of their time, talent and treasure for many years and their enthusiasm for UA students’ and alumni success is unmatched.
We remain cautiously optimistic that we will be able to host a safe, outdoor, family-friendly event in Spring at the UA stadium in lieu of our traditional gala. We are putting safety first and will await more data and guidance before announcing event details. One part of our tradition we know we can keep is that FUN will be on the itinerary! Regardless, our work continues as does the need for your support. For the last 20 years, the UA board, staff and families have worked hard to become a top school in the nation by breaking records and changing the narrative of urban education. We will not let a pandemic stop us from continuing to build on that success!
How You Can Support
If local health guidelines require UAF to limit in-person event capacity, in-person attendance will generally be reserved based on sponsorship level and the order commitments are received. If necessary, an alternative at-home experience will be made available, which will include access to an abbreviated virtual program.
