The Foundation works to fulfill its mission to be a non profit fund-raising organization
that encourages and supports quality efforts by educators to enhance educational experiences for students of the Utica Community Schools. One of the ways we accomplish this is through the Educational Grant Program. Each year the applications reflect the dedication and passion of UCS educators. Below is the list of the 2019 - 2020 educational grant recipients. Thank you to every educator that supports this endeavor by submitting an application.
Together We Make a Difference!
