How they are participating
UNCF will reach out by email to all its donors and friends to encourage them to give to support worthy college students with financial need. Established in 1944, UNCF has helped over 400,000 students receive their degrees. With a cost ratio of 10 cents on the dollar, UNCF supports 60,000 college students at its 38 member historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and at 900 other colleges across our nation. Approximately 60% of our students are the first in their families to attend college and 60% are from families with annual household income less than $25,000. These talented and worthy students need financial help all year round to stay in college all the way to their graduation day. Gifts help us train our country’s next generation of professionals.
