MAKING OUR COMMUNITY BETTER!

YESTERDAY,

From its very beginning in 1969, the United Black Fund, Inc. worked to help people help themselves                   

Organized by everyday people, and led by two extraordinary community 

leaders, Dr. Calvin and Wilhelmina Rolark, UBF pioneered community based efforts to 

improve the lives of Blacks and impoverished people in the Washington DC Area.

TODAY,

UBF showcases Family focused initiatives that provide parents with tools for raising children; that encourage

                         required for nurturing and living, and for our  community to end violence and promote respect and cooperation.
