Why United Black Fund?                    

  Beginning in 1969, and continuing through the entirety of their lives, Calvin and Wilhelmina Rolark worked to help people help themselves through United Black Fund, Inc. Their historic battle to open the doors to charity Fundraising Campaigns for Black, Minority and Poor People    Organizations paved the way for tens of thousands 

 of Agencies that participate now in campaigns across the nation.

Today, UBF proudly works with more than 100 Member Agencies engaged in a daily

 struggle to combat conditions that dehumanize and reduce men, women and children 

throughout the area. We invite you to contact our organizations 

and speak with the dedicated men and women who make this great effort. They need 

your help and support...


... because nothing is more welcome than your helping hand... 


... because it takes money to engage these problems successfully...


... because that is the greatest power we know.

Please take a moment to read some of the outstanding essays selected from more than 

600 participants in our nationwide Ending the Violence 

 programs continue to inspire and uplift thousands of youth and adults.

The times we live in present greater challenges than ever before

but We are all in this together
Help make a  Brighter  Day...
