About the Walk for Education

For 73 years, UNCF has provided financial and technical assistance to our 37 member HBCUs. Without UNCF’s support, many of the students at these HBCUs would not have access to higher education or the benefits that it provides.

Ask your friends, family and co-workers to sponsor your walk. Your participation in the Walk for Education and the money you raise supports more than 60,000 students a year, builds a more diverse workforce, and strengthens our community.
