UCF Community Scholarship Fund needs your help!


For over 50 years, the Unionville Chadds Ford Community Scholarship Fund has provided scholarship aid to outstanding graduating seniors at Unionville High School.

The Fund is joint project between all the UCF PTOs as well as the UHS guidance counselors, principal and UCF administration.

Each year, we try to award 7-10 scholarships valued between $700-$1000.

The amount we are able to award varies based on donations received.


We have started our donation campaign and hope that you will consider making a donation.

NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL!  To underscore that,  If every family in the district donated $1, we would be able to award 3 scholarships.

We really mean it when we say no donation is too small.

You can have your student drop off the donation to the High School Office in an envelope marked UCF Community Scholarship.

You can send in a dollar, change or if you would like, a check made payable to UCF Community Scholarship Fund.


If you would like to mail in your donation, it can be sent to:

UCF Community Scholarship Fund

UHS c/o Linda Miller

750 Unionville Road

Kennett Square PA 19348


THANK YOU in advance for your support!  Feel free to contact me with any questions.
