UNCF/AMEX Launch Building Better Futures Program

November 2022

UNCF logoThe United Negro College Fund (UNCF) and American Express have launched the Building Better Futures Program.

The program was established partly because African American students have faced greater financial challenges when it comes to accessing higher education opportunities. This partnership primarily centers around a $2 million donation from the American Express Foundation to ensure Building Better Futures accelerator grants are available to current HBCU students, while strengthening the support for UNCF’s K-12 initiative – a program that aids students, parents, and community leaders in their efforts to prepare students for college.

The program will also feature recruitment initiatives like informative marketing campaigns and webinars that will inform HBCU students and alumnae of any available American Express internship opportunities and full-time job openings.
