70718 HEAF

This minor planet is named after HEAF, the Harlem Educational Activities Fund, an American not-for-profit organization that extends educational an enrichment opportunities to underprivileged students in New York city. They were founded in 1989 by Daniel Rose, and have been increasing rates of high school graduation and college acceptance in the city ever since.

The symbol for this minor planet is taken from an element of the organization's logo: it is a motorboard, the hat traditionally worn in Western graduation ceremonies, represented as a lozenge that is twice as wide as it is tall, with a vertical line coming down from the left side, representing a tassel.
