The Association of University of Puerto Rico Alumni and Friends Abroad (UPRAA) Board of Directors is proud to announce that UPRAA is now part of the 2015 Combined Federal Campaign of the National Capital Area (CFCNCA).  The CFCNCA is a great opportunity to help our Hispanic scholarship fund and charity efforts.

During the 2014 campaign, the CFCNCA raised over $49 Million for distribution among all participating charities.  UPRAA encourages everyone to donate during this year’s campaign from September 1, through December 31, 2015.  Your generous contribution to UPRAA via the CFCNCA will help Hispanic students achieve their educational dreams and aspirations.

During the past 10 years, UPRAA has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to Hispanic students who have demonstrated commitment to public service, academic merit, and financial need.  Our scholarshp programs have also supported the Carlos Rosario Charter School in Washington DC, the HOME organization in Fredericksburg VA, the Literacy Council of Northern Virginia, the Family Services, Inc, in Maryland and the “Centro de Servicios Abriendo Nuevos Surcos” in Puerto Rico. UPRAA is a volunteer-based organization; all funds raised go directly to scholarships and charity.

Join your fellow federal employees who are making extraordinary things possible with their CFCNCA donations.  Every gift, large or small, is greatly appreciated.  Donating is simple and secure.  We encourage you to share this message to your friends and family that are working for the Federal Government. Together we are stronger and can have a bigger impact in the lives of Hispanic students.
