The Upper Arlington Education Foundation was incorporated November 20, 1985 as a not-for-profit organization with independent tax exempt status. Its purpose is to promote excellence in public education for the children of the community through the development of a permanent endowment fund.
Monies donated to the Foundation are invested with Hamilton Capital Management. The UAEF trustees are careful stewards of the foundation's money, taking an active role in the investments selected by the Consulting Group.
The Foundation is structured to provide financial support for enrichment activities, whose costs exceed the District's budget. These are not only in traditional classroom programs, but also programs in the fields of fine arts and athletics.
