SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION PACKET
The United Negro College Fund (UNCF) is the nation’s largest, oldest, most successful and most
comprehensive minority higher education assistance organization. UNCF provides operating funds and
technology enhancement services for 39 member historically black colleges and universities ( HBCUs),
scholarships and internships for students at more than 900 institutions and faculty and administrative
professional training.


For over 63 years, the United Negro College Fund has raised more than $2.5 billion to help more than
350,000 students attend college and has distributed more funds to help minorities attend school than
any entity outside of the government. Fundraising allows our schools to keep tuition low for many who
otherwise would not have a chance for a quality education. Widely recognized for its fundraising
efficiency, UNCF has been named the number one education non-profit in America. Both the Non-Profit
Times and The Chronicle of Philanthropy have ranked UNCF among the top 100 charitable
organizations in the country. Recently, in the October 8, 2007 issue of US News & World Report’s
HBCU Rankings; eight of the top ten schools are UNCF member institutions.


As the face of America continues to change, UNCF is uniquely positioned as a pacesetter in helping
companies develop the workforce of the 21st Century, and assisting them in meeting their diversity
objectives. Together, The United College Fund and its member institutions help students to gain the
confidence, training, and social skills necessary to succeed in today’s technology-driven society.




               92% receive financial aid.




There is no magic formula for success; every person finds his or her unique path. However, in today’s
world, nearly every success story shares one common element, higher education. For that reason, the
United Negro College Fund – the nation’s oldest minority higher education assistance organization –
continues its commitment to providing educational opportunity for financially disadvantaged minority
youth. Join UNCF as we give future generations the one thing they need most: opportunity.
