Volunteer Opportunities

UNCF is always in need of volunteers to help us carry out our mission. Local offices can use help with day-to-day support. Fundraising events need many different types of staff to carry out tasks to ensure an event is successful. Workplace campaigns can use friendly faces to tell the UNCF story to those who might want to lend a hand through a payroll deduction.

If you've got the time and are interested in getting behind UNCF, we'd be very happy to hear from you. Your life experience enables us to do more and reach others who can make a difference in the lives of our students.

Investing your time to help future students get the education they need enables us to ensure that everyone knows “A mind is a terrible thing to waste, but a wonderful thing to invest in.”®
