UNCF Cleveland

“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 Ohio and around the country?

UNCF Cleveland is here to help you send a student to college and turn his or her life around. Our mission is to help Ohio students reach their full potential by providing them access to resources and dollars to get to and through college. We are helping to educate a new generation of leaders.

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 UNCFCLEV 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 Cleveland will make the connection. Contact us today to learn how you can help.

UNCF means three things to me: opportunity—what we provide to deserving students; advancement—the advantage students get by continuing their education; and access—which UNCF gives to students through scholarship and internship opportunities.
