UNCF Detroit: Building Better Futures

2019 has Been an Exciting Year! The 31st Annual Detroit Walk for Education, the largest and most successful walk in the UNCF network, raised $731,630, with more coming in. The Detroit Inter-Alumni Council sponsored an HBCU College Fair, giving local students the opportunity to apply to as many as 55 HBCUs without fees or charges.  And, we held our first “State of UNCF Michigan: A Community Conversation” with a UNCF expert panel. The conversation was an opportunity for the Michigan community to learn about UNCF and the impact Michigan has on its mission.

Here are the highlights!

The support I received from UNCF has been invaluable through my college tenure. UNCF goes above and beyond to invest in individuals who are determined to succeed despite the odds. I am forever indebted to UNCF for their support on my path to excellence!
