UNCF National Interfaith and Education Initiative

Since 1944, UNCF and the interfaith community have invested in each other. Churches and other places of worship around the country have helped historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) keep their doors open and their dedication to education strong. And UNCF has reached out around the country to raise the funds their students need to become the next generation of ministers and church-supporting congregants.

Without churches, UNCF likely wouldn’t exist. Collectively, they planted the seed that grew the tree from which we sprang. The interfaith community has played a critical role in the founding of many of our HBCUs—and thus UNCF—and over the decades, has provided vital funds that have helped to sustain our schools.
