The Luther Vandross Foundation is thrilled to announce that its 2nd annual fundraiser will be held on May 4, 2024, at the Rivers Casino in Philadelphia, PA. The event aims to raise funds to support students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

The Luther Vandross Foundation, established in 2020 to honor the iconic singer’s philanthropic spirit and his dedication to education, provides financial support to HBCU students, aligning with Luther’s lifelong advocacy for accessible education. Recognizing the hurdles in funding college education, Luther actively supported the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) and left generous donations to enhance educational opportunities for disadvantaged students. Following in the philanthropic footsteps of Luther’s mother, Mary Ida, the Foundation has since awarded over $500,000 in scholarships, profoundly affecting many students’ lives and helping them to realize their academic aspirations.
