Thank you for your interest in supporting Virginia Union University's (VUU) annual Legacy Awards & Scholarship Gala hosted by Mayor Levar M. Stoney.

Amid, COVID-19 in 2020 we quickly organized events digitally; just as quickly, we discovered that there is no substitute for real human interaction. In the last two years, we've realized the core motivation for people to participate. Plus, the level of online participation isn’t as dedicated as in real life.

We are excited to bring to you in person the 8th annual Legacy Award & Scholarship Gala on Friday, March 31, 2023, at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. The event will reflect on this year's theme, "All Things Excellence" celebrating 158 years of providing a nurturing and intellectual environment for learning and raising scholarship revenue to help students overcome any financial barriers associated with pursuing a college degree.

Corporations and community groups are invited to support the fundraising event with the purchase of sponsor packages ranging from $2,000 - $50,000. Sponsor benefits include a reserved table, recognition at the event, and related print and electronic materials. Your contributions will help continue Virginia Union University’s legacy of providing quality education to students throughout the country and around the globe.
