About Us

The Urbandale Education Foundation (UEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to enhancing the educational experience of all students in the Urbandale Community School District by funding projects and initiatives not supported within existing school budgets. The UEF raises funds through grants and private donations and then invests in enhanced educational programming, innovative technology, scholarships for graduates, state-of-the-art facilities, and lifelong learning opportunities for teachers.

The UEF is in the unique position to provide support for Urbandale schools, award scholarships to UHS graduates, and connect Urbandale alumni through the merger and partnership of three organizations:

1) Urbandale Education Foundation
2) Urbandale Dollars for Scholars
3) Urbandale Alumni Association

The UEF is dedicated to making a difference in the future of Urbandale schools, students, and the vitality of our community. Download our UEF Brochure.


The mission of the Urbandale Education Foundation is to enhance opportunities for Urbandale students, teachers, and staff.
