Crown Castle Donates $1 M to UNCF; CEO Jay Brown Matches It
The gift funds scholarships for students attending UNCF’s 37-member historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and more than 1,100 other colleges and universities across the United States.
The donation included a $1 million company contribution and a $1 million personal match from Crown Castle CEO Jay Brown. In addition, Crown Castle employees and board members contributed, resulting in the creation of a UNCF Crown Castle Opportunity Scholarship.
“We believe in treating everyone with dignity, humanity and respect,” said Brown. “Equal access to a quality higher education is critical to creating opportunities. I’m committed personally, and as Crown Castle’s leader, to invest in the future leaders of our country.”
Crown Castle’s generous donation and commitment will have a lasting impact on our students. And the leadership demonstrated by Jay Brown, to personally match his company’s donation, is outstanding. This is what it takes to realize the vision of a nation where all Americans have equal access to a college education and better futures.
