“A mind is a terrible thing to waste, but a wonderful thing to invest in.”® Why not invest your time or money in better futures for young people in North Carolina and around the country?
UNCF Charlotte is here to help you send a student to college and turn his or her life around.
UNCF still needs your assistance, as we can only help 1 out of 10 students who apply for scholarships, due to insufficient available funding. Text UNCFCHAR or UNCFNC to 50555 to give $25, or click here to donate today and build better futures for African American students!
Want to volunteer for a formal event or a noontime luncheon with community leaders? If you’ve got the time and are interested in getting behind UNCF, we’d be very happy to hear from you. Is a child you know looking for the right college? Can you contribute to keeping student aid available and academic programs strong at UNCF-member colleges or universities? UNCF Charlotte will make the connection. Contact us today to learn how you can help.
Five UNCF-member institutions are located in the UNCF Charlotte area:
- Bennett College
- Johnson C. Smith University
- Livingstone College
- Shaw University
- St. Augustine’s University
UNCF Charlotte Mayor’s Masked Ball is about more than just a good time.
UNCF Charlotte held its annual fundraiser on Saturday, March 9. With both the current mayor and former Mayor Anthony Foxx in attendance, with Secretary Foxx receiving the Masked Award, along with UNCF board member and Bank of America executive Laurie Readhead and singer Anthony Hamilton, the evening was a great success, raising much-needed support for area students and HBCUs. JCSU and the Bennett College’s presidents were also on hand.
