The Ford HBCU Community Challenge Helps Students Make a Difference

Rich in history, historically black colleges and universities are steeped in tradition and are committed to enriching the mind, body and spirit of their students. Over the past four years, Ford Motor Company has aided these efforts through the the Ford Fund -- the company's philanthropic arm -- and the Ford HBCU Community Challenge.

Ford requests proposals from teams of students at HBCUs around the country and assigns them the task of designing a project that addresses critical local needs. Teams then partner with a local non-profit and develop a proposal that furthers the initiative.

The top three teams are brought to Dearborn, Michigan to present their ideas to a panel of Ford, with the winning team takes home $75,000 in scholarship monies while the other two receive funding for their programs. The Ford executives also serve as mentors to the teams and subject matter experts.

Fox Ford of Cadillac is proud to be affiliated with a company that cares, and our showroom at 1450 North Mitchell Street in Cadillac proudly serves drivers from the Cadillac, Mesick, Houghton Lake, Roscommon and Reed City areas.
