Since UNCF was founded in 1944, opportunities for African American and other minority youths have increased dramatically. But the national need for minority education has proven as timeless as UNCF's motto, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste." Far too many African American and other minority students still lack the financial and other support or the rigorous pre-college education they need to gain admission to and succeed in college. It is to the success, in school and beyond, of these young men and women that UNCF is dedicated, as much today as it was when it was founded.
