The Urbandale Education Foundation 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
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 dedicated to making a difference in the future of Urbandale schools, students, and the vitality of our community.
2. Urbandale Dollars for Scholars
Urbandale Dollars for Scholars is focused on expanding both the number and amount of scholarships awarded to UHS graduates. The Urbandale Dollars for Scholars is the oldest Dollars for Scholars charter in Iowa and recently provided over $14,000 in scholarships to Urbandale grads.
3. Urbandale Alumni Association
The Urbandale Alumni Association (pictured below) was formed in 2013 with the intention of connecting Urbandale alumni in order to build and strengthen relationships throughout our community, our state, our country, and even our world. The association is made up of a group of alumni volunteers that coordinate, plan, and host special events, fundraisers, and reunions.
