The Nexstar Media Charitable Foundation donated $5,000 to the Chicago Chapter of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) on behalf of WGN-TV. The donation will be used to fund scholarships for students attending a range of historically Black colleges and universities throughout the United States.
UNCF’s mission is to build a robust and nationally recognized pipeline of under-represented students who, because of UNCF support, become highly-qualified college graduates and to ensure that its network of member institutions is a respected model of best practice in moving students to and through college. UNCF annually awards more than $100 million scholarships to more than 10,000 students and provides significant financial support to 37 historically Black colleges and universities across the country. It also serves as the nation’s leading advocate for the importance of minority education and community engagement.
