UNCF New Orleans

“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 Louisiana, Arkansas and around the country?

UNCF New Orleans 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 UNCFNO 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 New Orleans will make the connection. Contact us today to learn how you can help.

The scholarships from UNCF have meant the world to me. … UNCF saw my potential and supported me when I needed it most. Now I am in my second year in the pharmacy program at Xavier University. Thank you for consistently believing in me.
