Help Black students attend and finish college

Donation protected
Hi, my name is George L. Cook III. I am a trustee on the Union County College Foundation, and we help students finish college.

In light of the attacks on DEI and attempts to stop any program that helps a specific group it is now even more important that we raise money to help Black students.

I am raising money for the Union County College Close The Gap Fund. The Close The Gap Fund helps Black students attend and finish college through grants or micro scholarships that they DO NOT have to pay back. Many African American students at our college struggle to finish school not because of academics but because of finances.

Many of these students struggle with their stay in school but not due to grades. They need help with paying for classes, books, transportation, and even paying for lunch.


Your contribution can make an impact on a student's life. Whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Many of these students that were helped continued to further their college education to help better themselves and our communities. Please give today.

The mission of the Union County College Foundation is to develop private financial resources to support Union County College programs and students.
