many parents and alumni. If total donations made in memory
of a person exceed $1,000, that person's name is included

Memorials" in our publications. For persons wishing

fund for a specific purpose at the UAEF, a minimum donation
of $10,000 is required. It is the trustees wish to keep UAEF
money in the school district, so any new fund must benefit
current staff and students.
on the Sunday night of Labor Day weekend, the UAEF holds its
annual fundraiser, The Golden
Bear Bash! to benefit the General
Unrestricted Fund from which grants are made to student
and staff. Additionally, ongoing fund-raising campaigns solicit
alumni, parents of current students, and the community at
large for donations. Informational presentations about the
UAEF are made to parent-teacher organizations, service clubs,
and senior citizens in our community.
