When it comes to helping HBCUs, the United Negro College Fund has always done its part in making contributions. And during its 33rd annual United Negro College Fund Atlanta Mayor’s Masked Ball, several entertainers were on hand and donated money to the organization.

Rapper Future donated $25,000 to the program, as did Jeezy, Usher and Tyrese, for a total contribution of $100,000.


“This must-attend event is full of fun, fashion, glitz and glamour that supports UNCF’s mission of investing in better futures for the young men and women we serve and by helping them move to and through college,” UNCF said about the event.

The entertainers who donated to the organization did so on behalf of their own organizations. Future's donation was made on behalf of his Freewishes Foundation, and Usher's New Look Atlanta Leadership Academy also provides a $100,000 UNCF scholarship.
