Hurricane Relief: A Message from UNCF CEO

"Donate to help HBCU students through this emergency so they can stay in school."


Dear UNCF Supporters:

I am reaching out to you as members of the UNCF family of supporters with an urgent request: Our students in the path of Harvey need your help, and they need it today.

We have all seen the devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey in an area that is home to thousands of HBCU students. As the flood waters recede, we know all too well what we will find, the burden falling hardest on those least able to afford it: Homes ruined and families forced into temporary shelters. Social service agencies overwhelmed by requests for help.

Businesses are closed, perhaps for weeks or months, depriving employees of the paychecks they count on to pay family expenses, including their children’s college tuition.

I am calling on you to click the “DONATE” button on this page to help HBCU students through this emergency so they can stay in school. Restoring the damage done by Harvey will be a long process. But our students need your help right away. Please act now—right now—to help them. They will never forget your generosity when they need it most. And neither will I.

Thank you.

Dr. Michael L. Lomax
