The UNCF Virtual Walk for Education is a nationwide initiative to raise the critical funds UNCF needs to fulfill our mission of support to our member HBCUs and to help students pursue their educational endeavors prepared for active participation in society.
While this is a national walk, all 23 UNCF area offices will be participating, supported by local and national sponsors, and honoring local supporters. Visit your area’s office page and “walk locally.”
Join us online on Sept. 19 to make a donation to UNCF. Make a difference while practicing social distancing—walk, run, cycle, dance—all in honor of UNCF, our students, and schools. Then, celebrate with UNCF during a nationwide virtual event featuring celebrities, member presidents, students, alumni and others!Learn More

Join a community of leaders, advocates and stakeholders at HBCUs Converge 2020, July 12 in Atlanta, GA. UNCF’s Institute for Capacity Building is hosting its premiere platform to share ideas, scale innovation, and drive collaboration to strengthen and grow the impact HBCUs have on the Black community, the educational pipeline, and the economy.
The 2020 theme is “One Mission. One Voice.” We are unifying the collective power and resources of our institutions to promote best practices and drive transformational change. The convening will leverage the unique experience of HBCUs as we explore the changing needs of a 21st Century workplace in a broader context of systemic cultural and societal barriers.
Interact with thought leaders and peers throughout the three-day convening as you explore how HBCUs are innovating and collaborating to better serve students, their local communities and our nation. Participants will walk away with a deeper understanding of the latest promising practices of institutional participants, a broader outlook on HBCUs as centers of innovations, and a stronger network of change agents in the HBCU and PBI sector.

The Fort Wayne Mayor’s Breakfast is hosted by the UNCF Fort Wayne Leadership Council. Since 2007, UNCF’s Fort Wayne Leadership Council has awarded over 75 scholarships and raised over $250,000 in funding to get students to and through college. The Fort Wayne Scholarship Program’s immediate aim is to identify and reward outstanding area students that are seeking higher education and meaningful careers but need financial support to begin and sustain their educational journeys.
The Fort Wayne Mayor’s Breakfast benefiting UNCF will feature greetings from the Honorable Mayor Thomas C. Henry, who is dedicated to working to diversify the workforce and promote education equality. The event will be attended by the city’s civic and business leaders, education professionals and role players in the areas of education and workforce development for the city of Fort Wayne.
Net proceeds from this fundraising event will support UNCF’s education mission and help break the financial barriers that prevent so many talented students from earning a college degree.
Individual tickets are $35. The event will be held on Zoom.
