UNCF “Protecting Our FUTURE” Campaign

UNCF’s Federal Policy and Government Affairs Division has been working urgently to save a source of funding ($85 million/year) for HBCUs. The funding expires at the end of the month unless Congress acts.

We are just days away from HBCUs losing $85 million a year to educate our students. The program we are trying to protect and get funded is the Mandatory Title III/SAFRA funding—expiring Sept. 30, 2019. It’s easy to protect $85 million per year for HBCUs, let Congress know HBCUs matter—and to protect our FUTURE!

To help save this vital funding for HBCUs:

  1. Go to www.uncf.org/protectingourfuture
  2. Click “write your Member of Congress”
  3.  Fill out the blank fields and click “next”
  4.  Click “submit.” The pre-written letter will be sent to your U.S. Representative and both of your U.S. Senators.

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 Detroit will make the connection. Contact us today at uncfmichigan@uncf.org to learn how you can help.
