The UMC denomination supports the largest number of historically Black colleges or universities?
One of the most significant ways The United Methodist Church helps make quality education accessible to all is through The Black College Fund.
ABOUT BLACK COLLEGE FUND (BCF)
In 1972, The United Methodist Church established the Black College Fund to provide a constant, reliable approach to support United Methodist historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) related to the church. The fund supports eleven HBCUs—the largest number of Black colleges and universities receiving funding from any church body in the United States. Colleges supported by The Black College Fund are able to 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 fund also supports intern programs to enrich communication skills. Through The Black College Fund, we’re working together to ensure that the institutions that have equipped our nation’s finest leaders continue for years to come.
