United Negro College Fund - UNCF

about

In 1943, Dr. Frederick D. Patterson, president of Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University), wrote an open letter in the Pittsburgh Courier to the presidents of our nation's private black colleges urging them to "pool their small monies and make a united appeal to the national conscience." One year later, the United Negro College Fund was incorporated on April 25, 1944 with 27 member colleges and a combined enrollment of 14,000 students. Since that time, UNCF has grown to become a consortium of 39 private, accredited four-year historically black colleges and universities, the nation's oldest and most successful African American higher education assistance organization.
