Did you know colleges supported by the Black College Fund are able to keep lower tuition rates?

The colleges supported by the Black College Fund keep tuition relatively low so students with modest incomes may attend. The fund gives the participating colleges and universities the finances they need to support college staff and faculty who can serve as strong intellectual, cultural and spiritual mentors. The faculty and staff of Black colleges are committed to helping everyone with a dream excel regardless of race, class, gender, or ethnic heritage.

ABOUT BLACK COLLEGE FUND (BCF)

Following the Civil War, the former Methodist Episcopal Church organized the Freedmen's Aid Society to help educate black people who could not read or write. In 1972, The United Methodist Church established the Black College Fund to provide reliable support for UM-related historically Black colleges and offer a chance to everyone with a dream and a commitment to excel – regardless of race, class, gender, or ethnic heritage. Many of these students, often the first in their family to go to college, would fall through the cracks and never get the college degree they are capable of earning. The United Methodist Church supports the largest number of fully accredited historically Black colleges and universities in the United States. This fund is managed through the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.
