UNCF Dallas

“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 Northern Texas, Oklahoma and around the country?

UNCF Dallas 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 UNCFDAL 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 Dallas will make the connection. Contact us today to learn how you can help.
