The endowment will be administered by the United Negro College Fund, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Donations to raise the endowment are being accepted by the National Heritage Foundation, also a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Join Our Village of Supporters! To date, we have raised almost half a million dollars. Our Campaign goal is $5 Million Dollars. We welcome passionate partners who seek to preserve Ossie's legacy through their contribution.

What is the Ossie Davis Endowment really about? Itís about young African American students, walking in the tradition of a great actor, activist and American, going to school fully funded for four years. Itís about supporting in whatever way you can.

Make the Ossie Davis Endowment a reality with your donation.
