As a former Whitney M. Young, Jr. Award Recipient (2009) and Chairman of the Urban League Board of Directors (2005 - 2006), I am inviting you to join me and a distinguished group of individuals in the Urban League Stewards of Excellence program. The Urban League of Central Carolinas (ULCC) will host its annual Whitney M. Young Gala fundraiser themed: “Standing for Opportunity,” on Saturday, May 6 at the Westin Hotel, Uptown Charlotte. As community leaders, we have a collective obligation to ensure the continued success of the League. Our stewardship in giving should be a beacon for the League to the greater Charlotte community. We must stand strong and tall for opportunity during these times of great economic and racial disparities and national leadership uncertainty.
Although a gift of $1,000 is the minimum request, any gift $2,000 or greater will further realize Whitney M. Young’s Legacy of creating pathways and access to family-sustaining careers. Our commitment to the mission is critical and we must lead from a place of financial strength as engaged philanthropic stewards of this prestigious organization and work. Funds raised for this event have an immediate connection to clients, instructors, and vibrant educational and training programs that distinguish the league. ULCC students and clients are engaged in the world around them, challenged in real-world training opportunities and prepared to excel on a career path.
The League has been a consistent and reliable solution in preparing local talent for living wage job opportunities. I stand with this organization and know the power of our gift will ensure the continued success of programming. Your contribution will provide you and a guest access into the 2017 Gala. We ask you to share the enclosed invitations to the Gala with colleagues and friends as well so they can experience, first-hand, the impacts and outcomes of the League.
