UNCF Fort Lauderdale

“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 South Florida and around the country?

UNCF Fort Lauderdale is here to help you send a student to college and turn his or her life around.


Thank you for your generosity on Giving Tuesday!

Your donations raised needed funds to support UNCF’s mission to help students get to and through college. 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 UNCFFTL 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? 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 Fort Lauderdale will make the connection. Contact us today to learn how you can help.
