UNCF San Francisco

“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 Northern California, Northern Nevada, Utah, Colorado and around the country?

UNCF San Francisco 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 UNCFNCAL to 50555 to give $25, or click here to donate today and build better futures for African American students!


UNCF in Silicon Valley

More than 100 UNCF HBCU Innovation Summit fellows gathered in Silicon Valley courtesy of UNCF in late 2017. Over four intense days, fellows engaged with tech CEOs, tech recruiters and connected with tech-industry peers they will join upon graduation. Participants went behind-the-scenes at YouTube, Pure Storage, eBay, Adobe, Net App, Walmart, Veritas, Yelp, Salesforce, Uber, Workday, and Twitter campuses. A number of the fellows received job offers directly on the spot.
