Donor Stories

Joe and Marlene Berwanger created a fund at the UACF to pay for all the hanging baskets and planter beautification on the Arlington Mallway – we are grateful to them for making the Mallway an incredible brightspot!

Quote from Marlene and Joe Berwanger:

“We established the Marlene and Joseph Berwanger Fund with the Upper Arlington Community Foundation to give back to the community that has given so much to our family. Our focus is beautification for Upper Arlington. Our first goal is to enhance the Arlington Avenue Mallway. We are proud of the first steps taken in 2014 to add color and vibrancy to the Mallway, and look forward as this area grows even more beautiful in the coming years. We hope our efforts will inspire others in our community to contribute to the UACF, making their own dreams come true for Upper Arlington.”

Residents and friends of all ages with all kinds of interests make a gift to the community foundation.

Our foundation brings together individuals with diverse interests and ideas, combines their gifts for maximum impact, and channels those donations to a host of worthy programs and projects.

The collective force of that generosity helps us accomplish so many good works. We’re grateful to all the kind, committed people who demonstrate in big ways and small how much they care about this special place that is Upper Arlington, Ohio.
