UNCF Media Center

Welcome to the UNCF Media Center, your source for press releases, public service announcements, videos and more. The media center offers a wide range of news-worthy items, including scheduled events, scholarships, awards and accomplishments.

UNCF was founded on April 25, 1944 and for 75 years, it has supported private HBCUs and hundreds of thousands of deserving students, and advocated for minority higher education. As it marks this incredible milestone, UNCF will celebrate all year long at its fundraising events across the country.  Visit UNCF.org/75th for details of our celebration, including a national day of giving.


UNCF—on the heels of delivering over $100 million in additional federal funding to HBCUs—presented the “State of the HBCU Address,”setting the agenda for federal lawmakers in the 116th Congress and highlighting the progress and accomplishments of HBCUs over the past year.



Building a better narrative involves promoting the “urgency of now.”
