Our theme is The Urgency of NOW because we’re calling for bold changes that help our neighbors thrive.

The breakfast is our annual fundraiser for the Joseph A. Beavers Scholarships and other UPO programs that Unite People with Opportunities. To keep everyone safe, the event will be virtual instead of in person.

What does your support mean?

Your generous donation creates opportunities for students like Erica Davis, a 2011 Beavers Scholar who graduated from the University of Kansas, earning her Bachelor’s in Social Welfare in 2016. She earned her Master’s in Social Work in 2017 and is now a Clinical Counselor at Maya Angelou Public Charter School in Washington, DC’s Ward 7. Erica is the first person from her family to graduate from college, which is true for the overwhelming majority of our scholars.

“The Joseph A. Beavers Scholarship was the best thing that ever happened to me,” says Ms. Davis. “It gave me the courage to grow in ways that I could not imagine. I am now a well-rounded, culturally humble and competent person, hungry for equality and equity. I am determined to seek justice and empower others.”

 You can help scholars like Erica Davis grow wings with your donation to UPO today.
