A gift for children
The Mission of the Utica Community Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence is 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.
Uniting our community in support of quality public education since 1986, the Utica Community Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence is committed to providing meaningful educational experiences for all students. Thanks to corporations, local businesses, community leaders and citizens, the Foundation has distributed more than one million dollars in grants to teachers and scholarships to students. The Utica Community Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence was created in 1986 to raise additional funds to provide meaningful educational experiences for students not otherwise funded by the school district. The Foundation is a non-profit organization governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of area business and community leaders. The Foundation is funded through memberships, donations, fundraisers and memorials, contributing significantly to classroom programs for nearly 30 years.
