We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing hardship at this time. Thank you for trusting us to help!

The Upper Arlington Community Foundation’s Good Neighbor Fund (GNF) was established to help Upper Arlington residents who have a unique, unforeseen event happen in their lives that threatens their stability. The GNF is made possible by the Upper Arlington Community Foundation (UACF) and your Upper Arlington neighbors. Together, we work to ensure our neighbors in need know about this safety net.

This fund is specifically for one-time emergency assistance due to an event that seriously jeopardizes the recipient’s ability to meet basic needs. This fund serves as a last resort for those with urgent needs who have exhausted all other options for financial assistance.
