UNCF Call to Action – Save the Date: #PreserveHBCUs On October 26th During National HBCU Week

Dear Friend,

You can help save America’s National Treasures!

On October 26th, join UNCF during National HBCU Week in a National Call to Action to #PreserveHBCUs.


The fate of more than 700 historic buildings on HBCU campuses hinges on the support of the U.S. Senate. Congress can preserve historic buildings on HBCU campuses by passing long-overdue legislation before the end of the year to provide much needed funds for the HBCU Historic Preservation Program. Or Congress could do nothing and let these historic national treasures deteriorate.

Make a difference by urging your Senators to support at least $5 million for the HBCU Historic Preservation Program in the final FY 2017 federal budget.

Your voice matters! Help HBCUs get the resources they need to restore America’s national treasures! To learn more visit: uncf.org/PreserveHBCUs.
