Your help is needed,

now more than ever. Sponsor the UA+Ed today.

After making the decision to cancel the Golden Bear Bash, typically held over Labor Day weekend, our focus has turned from planning a FUNdraiser for 1400 people at Tremont Center to Enhancing What Matters Most - now more than ever.

Our excellent public schools have always been at the heart of our community. During this time full of uncertainties and challenges, we are reminded of the purpose behind the founding of the Upper Arlington Education Foundation in 1985, when Superintendent Dr. Homer Mincy brought together community leaders in order to respond to education funding cuts at the state level. For 35 years, through the generosity of donors like you, the UA+Ed has provided the “icing on the cake,” and now we are also helping to fund the cake.

The UA+Ed has committed to be prepared to support some of the school district’s most urgent needs that could include:


• The health and wellness of every student and staff member

• Effective and flexible instruction models to assist with any changes in teaching and learning due to the pandemic

• Initiatives that support our district's commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion

Most recently, the Upper Arlington Education Foundation funded a $25,000 grant to the school district to assist in providing children with breakfast and lunch for the entire summer. In the coming weeks and months, we will share updates on more grants that are enhancing what matters most.


Consider a donation or becoming a 2020 UA+Ed sponsor. Your support will assist in funding programs, projects, and experiences beyond the school district’s budget. Your help is greatly needed - now more than ever.
