Ford Motor Company has teamed up to support UNCF’s 34th year of raising funds to support equal access to a college education for all Americans. We are excited to announce that this year’s UNCF Walk for Education, will occur on Saturday, August 20th, 2022. Over the past 12 years, Ford Motor Company has raised and donated over $1.54M to UNCF. We are requesting your help, to reach our 2022 goal of $200,000.
UNCF (United Negro College Fund) is the nation’s largest, most successful, and comprehensive education-assistance organization devoted to minority students. With the exception of the U.S. government, UNCF has distributed more money than any other similar organization; over $5 billion since its inception to help underrepresented students attend post-secondary institutions. With the rising cost of a college education, assistance is no longer a luxury, but instead a necessity for most middle-class families and a lifeline for disadvantaged populations. The money raised from our Walk helps offset that critical need. Ford Motor Company’s employees are partnering with UNCF in an effort to meet this year’s $600,000 fundraising goal. In that quest, our manufacturing facilities will be conducting internal fund-raising initiatives to support these efforts. Please assist our Chicago Stamping Plant team in reaching our fundraising goals by supporting the events with donations.
We encourage you to recruit family members, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. to participate, as fundraising is a community endeavor. More information is coming over the next few weeks for activities and fundraising events from the Chicago Stamping Plant UNCF Team Captains. Please contact Rick Ross (cross8) or Virgil Key (vkey) for any assistance.
