UCF Education Foundation would like you to please designate UCFEF in the United Way Campaign.

Charitable Giving Campaigns are starting at many local companies and at the United Way of Southern Chester County.

Please consider donating specifically to the Unionville-Chadds Ford Education Foundation.

You can designate UCFEF as the recipient of your funds by using our tax ID: 23-2806707.  We directly support projects and programs in all six schools.  

Since some companies match employee donations given through workplace campaigns, it's a means to increase the funding to our schools.
