Grants Highlights 2019

This year has been another great year of community development, new projects, and partnerships created to serve our future. We are currently raising funds for new projects such as Petro Plaza, honoring outstanding athletic volunteers and Veterans Memorial Plaza, honoring the military service of our residents. Alongside these projects, we wanted to share about some of the grants we have awarded so far this year.

Honoring Youth Sports Volunteers

We know that parents and teachers spend incredible time and energy investing in our children, but do we forget to honor the coaches and other athletic volunteers that pour hours and hours into teaching and helping our children in their free time?

Heart of UA Award

The first ever Heart of UA Award, designated to honoring exceptionally generous individuals and families, was presented to the Tim and Glenda Huffman Family this year. Now, we are looking ahead to see who we will honor in 2020!

“We hope our efforts will inspire others in our community to contribute to the Foundation, and make their own dreams for Upper Arlington come true.”

— Marlene and Joe Berwanger
