UNCF St. Louis

“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 Missouri, Kansas and around the country?

UNCF St. Louis is here to help you send a student to college and turn his or her life around. We strive to make sure students have the financial resources for obtaining a college education as well a strategy and the necessary support to complete college. In addition UNCF St Louis advocates on behalf of all ages of students for increased educational opportunities.

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

Want to volunteer for a formal event or a noontime luncheon with community leaders? If you've got the time and are interested in getting behind UNCF, we'd be very happy to hear from you. Is a child you know looking for the right college? Can you contribute to keeping student aid available and academic programs strong at UNCF-member colleges or universities? UNCF St. Louis will make the connection. Contact us today to learn how you can help.
