“When you learn, teach. When you get, GIVE.” – Dr. Maya Angelou

Last week National Urban League President & CEO Marc Morial shared how, with your help, “Together We Can Change Lives” — a promise to get one step closer to our four Empowerment Goals.

Today, on #GivingTuesday, we ask that you join us in celebrating the power of giving by making a donation to the National Urban League. Our assistance with fighting injustices, and confronting job losses and discrimination are needed more than ever before. Your gift will help us maximize our impact.

Last year, with the generous support of our donors, we were able to:

  • Provide service learning, historical & cultural literacy, and mentoring to 2,375 students across affiliates nationwide through Urban League Project Ready
  • Provide a combined 43,600 hours of business counseling and training services to almost 11,600 clients, and create/save 1,180 jobs.
  • Ensure equitable engagement of African American and other communities of color in the roll out of the Affordable Care Act.
  • Serve approximately 7,000 homeowners and nearly 30,000 clients across the counseling network of 33 affiliates with housing counseling (62% avoided foreclosure).>>Learn more
