GIVING CAMPAIGN FOR UCF SCHOLARSHIPS:

 

Some years ago we began the “end of the year” GIVING Campaign appeal. Gifts of any size truly makes a difference in the lives of our students.  In the pass due to the generous contributions we have been able to conduct a FREE Community SAT/ACT Boot Camp, Community STEM Day and help serious minded students with attendance at the annual Dream Chaser College Tour to North Carolina.

We humbly ask you to sow financially and support our End-Of-Year Giving Campaign with a TAX-DEDUCTIBLE Donation. 

 

We count on your generosity to help UCF “pay-it-forward” by sowing financial gift in any amount.  UCF is committed to working hard to raise up the next generation of youth leaders.  We partner with parents and the community to focus on three objectives:  Teach our students life skills, educational strategies and leadership!

We are counting on your generosity to make a difference locally in the lives of our young people.   

Please support UCF with a tax-deductible donation.  You may sow financially by:

NEW ADDRESS:  20203 GOSHEN ROAD #104, GAITHERSBURG, MD 20879

 

 

  • PayPal "Home Team Initiative": Join the “Home Team Initiative”: contribute monthly via PayPal.   

 

This initiative encourages patrons to financially sow into our youth development organization monthly.  The goal is to expand the base contributors and prospective members, teammates to partner in our efforts to change the lives of our students.  You can make a contribution any amount and as often as you can on line at www.ucfinc.org  by accessing web site and go to “Contribution” Pay Pal Link.

Again, we thank you for your generosity. We are counting on your compassion and generosity to help make a difference in the lives of our youth, their family, and our community.  Make UCF your not-for-profit organization for tax contribution gifts of any size and any amount makes a difference in the lives of students.

Youth Engagement Meeting:

 

UCF desire to be a “helping hand” to help you and your family navigate during this unprecedented COVID-19 Pandemic. In March 2020 we adjusted our thinking and pivoted to a virtual Zoom Platform in order to stay connected with mentoring our young people.

As we plan for the new 2020/2021 Academic year, UCF will have a robust schedule to stay connected with our parents, guardians, and students in this season.

We are excited about the Parent Round Table Meeting a new initiative for this season that will be held monthly on the third Thursdays. Thank you Mr. Chuck Harris and Mrs. Marcy Fulmore.

Our Youth Engagement Meetings will be conducted monthly on Saturdays starting at 11 a.m.

 

 

THEME: Developing the Next Generation of Youth Leaders!

 

I truly believe we are stronger working together and the possibility are endless in this moment of worldwide unrest in support of Black Lives Matter. It is imperative for our Parents and Students to continue to work together and share information.

 

We must be intentional to help increase the number of Success Stories from our community with the end result of boosting High School and College graduation rates for Black and Brown students, especially our male students.

 

HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP:

 

As we pivot to a Zoom Platform we are counting on you to connect your youth group, your sons and daughters, nephews, and friends in your “circle of influence” to UCF monthly Zoom meetings regards of where they live.

 

Let’s make sure they are part of this journey of excellence: planned activities and exposure outings. Let's work together to connect young people to their Destiny!

 

YOUR VOTE MATTERS – REQUEST YOUR EARLY VOTING APPLICATION TODAY AND RETURN ASAP!

ALSO THE U.S. CENSUS COUNT MATTERS AND IMPACT OUR COMMUNITY IN TERMS OF RESOURCES!

 

THE COUNT MATTERS: USCENSUS2020.GOV!

Parents, Guardians and Dads are encouraged to complete the Census and be counted. Go to my2020census.gov to complete the Census.

The Black and Brown Communities are at risk of being undercounted, which means we are not completing the Census. We need you to complete your 2020 Census because it is important to us to get the proper level of funding for schools, hospitals, in your community.

“Building Youth Success by Changing the Landscape and Leveraging Opportunities"

About Unity Christian Fellowship

Thank you for visiting Unity Christian Fellowship, Incorporated’s (UCF’s) website. We hope that you will feel our excitement as you visit the many locations on this site. We are very active in the community with like-minded organizations that are concerned with youth development and promoting student success.

 

UCF is a 501(c)3 non-profit community-based, premiere youth development organization that focuses on developing youth through enriching activities throughout the year. Since 2006, our youth organization has continued to successfully nurture, assist, and link young people to their destiny. We were founded by a group of Christian friends who turned what we naturally do for the community into an organization that works with young people of all ages.

Our mission is to promote student success and “change lives in the community one student at a time” by exposing young people to positive experiences that they otherwise would not have.  We do this by teaching educational strategies, leadership and life skills that enable them to make wise decisions throughout their middle and high school education.  

The members of UCF intend to serve as a catalyst in the community.  And our students are expected to become responsible, civic-minded adults who will make a positive contribution in their homes, schools, community, and society. In that light, this marks the second year that students have served in leadership roles within the organization.

We have formed a strong circle of supportive adults to help students navigate life's daily pitfalls, deal with the challenges of adolescence, and successfully manage their academic requirements in school. We teach our students to consistently strive for excellence in school. We want all of our students to improve their academic performance before they graduate from high school so they will have options and a successful path forward--be it college enrollment, vocation/trade schools, or careers in the military, federal service or private sector.

UCF also awards scholarships to eligible students who are highly motivated, demonstrate a commitment to community service, perform successfully academically, and have leadership potential.  Eligible students must have actively participated in the Aim High in Life Educational and Life Skills Program for a minimum of one year. The scholarships are funded primarily through UCF’s Annual Scholarship Dinner and private contributions.
