Beginning in the fall and through the entire school year, we encourage every member of the UFS community to contribute to our Annual Fund, affectionately known as the United Friends Fund. The United Friends Fund helps to support tangible resources that enhance our students’ education, staff training & development, school safety, technology, and more during the year, and for years to come. While student tuition funds our mission, the United Friends Fund supports our vision. Gifts to the United Friends Fund begin at just $1, so all members of our community can participate. See below for more information on what your contribution to the United Friends Fund will support this year. Consider a gift to our United Friends Fund Donate Today !
