Be a Good Neighbor

The UACF’s Good Neighbor Fund (GNF) was established in 2017 to help Upper Arlington residents who have a unique, unforeseen event happen in their lives that threatens their stability. These one-time-only emergency grants help us take care of one another in times of need. The GNF is made possible by the Upper Arlington Community Foundation (UACF) and the residents of Upper Arlington. This collaboration ensures that a safety net is available to our neighbors when they need it the most.

Gratitude for GNF

“Thank you so much for the funds to purchase a Safe Awake for our son. It makes us feel more confident about [his] safety at night. We’re so thankful for this organization!”

“I am recovering very well and hopeful for the future. Thank you so much for your help with paying our bills and mortgage!”

“This [grant] made me feel even more love for this city. I can’t put it into words. They’ll never know how much they helped me.”

“It was such a pleasant surprise. [The grant] really is from your neighbors. It’s your community, people you know. I feel lucky to live here.”

“[This grant] meant everything to us. As a small business there isn’t much help out there and we certainly didn’t expect it. But, in this case the funds were extremely welcome because this business is my life and failure is not an option.”

Be a good neighbor! Make your gift today.
