An initial gift of $10,000 from an Upper Arlington family, along with 35 additional generous gifts, launched the Education Foundation.

Gifts in any amount are welcomed and appreciated. Ways to give include direct gifts, stocks, planned giving, and living endowments. Memorials and gifts of recognition are made to the UAEF by many parents and alumni.

If total donations made in memory of a person exceed $1,000, that person's name is included in the category of Permanent Memorials in our publications. For persons wishing to establish a new endowment 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.

Each year 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.

If you wish to have a UAEF member speak to your organization, please contact our offices at 614-487-5007, ext. 1120.


Your generosity DOES make a difference to UA school children. We hope that you will consider a contribution to our Foundation as a part of your annual giving plan.
