This Giving Tuesday is very special to UNCF because Delta Air Lines, a loyal friend and partner to UNCF for many years, will match every dollar you donate up to $200,000 to support college scholarships to minority students at our 37 member HBCUs and 900 other colleges.
Chelsea Yari Goldson is a UNCF scholar and a media arts major at Clark Atlanta University, GA. Her goal is to become a respected voice for her generation and her community in the media. She has held this goal close to her heart since she was very young and with the help of her single parent mother and very hard work she entered college determined to succeed. At school, she is already preparing herself by participating in the radio club and hosting her own radio show twice a week on the college’s radio station. She is doing all she can to emulate the great radio and TV personalities she has watched and patterned for most of her life.
With the help of our loyal donors, Chelsea received much-needed UNCF scholarship, and is now making her dream a reality.
Delta’s match means that your gift to UNCF today will do twice as much good...without costing you a penny more! In fact, your gift now in any amount you feel you can afford will be doubled...at no additional cost to you and will help students like Chelsea.

UNCF(United Negro College Fund) was established in 1944 and since that time has raised over $4.5 billion and helped more than 430,000 talented students to graduate college. Our slogan, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”® was created in 1972 and immediately captured the heart of the nation with its powerful message.
Over the last 72 years, we have educated students who have gone on to become leaders in many areas in our nation. UNCF helps students in three ways. We award more than 10,000 students scholarships, worth more than $100 million, each year. We provide financial support to 37 historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), and we serve as the nation's leading advocate for the importance of minority education and community engagement.
