UNCF Houston

“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 southern Texas, New Mexico and around the country?

UNCF Houston 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 UNCFHOU 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 Houston will make the connection. Contact us today to learn how you can help.


Your contributions help area students like Daizja get to and through college.
