Building Better Futures One Step at a Time

Save the Date: September 19, 2020.

The UNCF Virtual Walk for Education is a nationwide initiative to raise the critical funds UNCF needs to fulfill our mission of support to our member HBCUs and to help students pursue their educational endeavors prepared for active participation in society.

Virtual Walk?

Join us online on Sept. 19 to make a donation to UNCF. Make a difference while practicing social distancing—walk, run, cycle, dance—all in honor of UNCF, our students, and schools. Then, celebrate with UNCF during a nationwide virtual event featuring celebrities, member presidents, students, alumni and others!

We invite you to team up with family, friends and co-workers to raise funds for UNCF. Everyone is invited to join the UNCF National Virtual Walk for Education. For more information please contact your local UNCF area office.
