Why I Support UNCF: New England Area Donors Speak Out
"There are very few organizations where you can be absolutely, positively, assured that your financial commitment will really make a difference and change lives."
Willma Davis STEM Scholarship for Young Women
“I come from a working class family that always valued education as a way to improve one's life prospects. My grandmother and mother believed in UNCF and one of my first relatives to attend college went to a UNCF school. I have supported UNCF for many years because it offers valuable opportunities to African American youth. I was fortunate to have had a wonderful career in finance for over 30 years. Unfortunately, there are still too few women of color in the finance area. As I look to the future and the growing career fields, many of the good opportunities for growth and career advancement are in the STEM fields. UNCF has facilitated my efforts to target my giving in these disciplines. I am pleased to be able to give back and provide scholarship support to talented African American young women majoring in the STEM disciplines.”
Chairman and CEO
“It is an honor to contribute to the great work accomplished by UNCF. There are very few organizations where you can be absolutely, positively, assured that your financial commitment will really make a difference and change lives. For decades, UNCF’s scholarships have provided opportunities for our next generation of leaders, and we look forward to supporting this worthy and distinguished mission into the future.”
Margaretta Hausman Family Charitable Trust
”I deeply believe in the importance of UNCF in promoting college education as a key to advancement.”
