The UAA supports projects that enhance schools, their programs and participation in activities that enrich the school experience. We focus on the middle school and high school, where all our students come together. Our support comes from annual membership dues, from fund-raising events and special fund-drives. The more help we get in fundraising, the more we can provide to our schools.
Since 1995, UAA has awarded more than $700,000 in grants to District 116 teachers and programs to support projects from computers and special library collections to a state-of-the-art surface for our track. We’ve helped the UHS Math Team travel to tournaments and the Future Farmers of America attend a conference. We’ve augmented sports equipment and supported the Lego competition and science equipment.
In addition to our twice-yearly awards to teachers who apply for grants, we’re now working to make possible two large projects on our high school-middle school campus: the athletic gateway and a renovation of the UHS auditorium. Take a look and join us in these exciting projects! It’s easy and fast—we take Paypal and have a secure site for credit card donations. Watch the difference your donation makes.
