History

The Union County Education Foundation (UCEF) was officially established in February of 2011 when it received 501 (c)(3) status. However, for years prior to that, the Foundation was the dream and vision of a small group of community leaders and educators.

UCEF was started because we believe effective community support is needed to provide the best educational opportunities for our children. Investing through UCEF makes a statement that you won’t settle for mediocre education in your community and that your children deserve the best. 

UCEF is a vehicle that can respond quickly to needs and offer the flexibility to underwrite new cutting edge programs. Community based Education Foundations allow stakeholders to have a voice and an active part in charting the future path for their students and teachers.
