2018 Giving Tuesday is Coming!

Give to UNCF and help students around the country get to and through college.

On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, UNCF will participate in Giving Tuesday—a day when the world comes together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving. That means starting today, UNCF will reach out to you through November 27 for donations to help us send deserving students to college—students like Tasean Baldwin.

Tasean is a teacher. He graduated from UNCF-member institution Johnson C. Smith University last spring with a degree in business administration. During his time in college, he was on the Dean’s List and the President’s List and was inducted into two honor societies. The UNCF scholarship he received lifted a large financial burden from his shoulders and positioned him for graduation. Tasean began his career five years ago, teaching middle school English through the Teach for America program. Currently, he is a middle school teacher in New York City and attending graduate school, working towards his master's degree in education. Without donors like you, UNCF would not have been able to help this talented young man. 

Give to UNCF on Giving Tuesday, and help deserving students like Tasean achieve their dreams!




Four Reasons to Give to UNCF

  • 60,000 young people are in college right now with UNCF’s help; but UNCF can only help 1 out of 10 students who apply for scholarship assistance due to insufficient available funding.
  • $27,000 is the average amount of college loan debt owed by graduates with a bachelor’s degree. Imagine starting out in life with such a huge debt.
  • 2/3 of job openings will require a post-secondary education or training by 2020.
  • 100 percent of American industry is demanding a better educated workforce.
