The University City Community Foundation, UCCF, is a Missouri non-profit corporation established by a group of diverse volunteers for the benefit of the University City community.
The Foundation is an outgrowth of Fair U City, an annual community carnival. Fair U City volunteers and originators always had the vision of using funds raised from the Fair to establish a non-profit organization that would provide small grants to support individuals and organizations working for the benefit of the community. After six successful years of staging the fair, Fair U City formally changed its name to the University City Community Foundation. In its revised no-profit filing, it is noted that Fair U City was be the primary fundraising arm for UCCF.
UCCF is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors elected to serve terms of one, two and three years; there is no paid staff. The Board meets monthly with the Executive Committee and other committees meeting as often as needed. The Board has an annual meeting in February to elect new officers and to approve grants recommended by the Grants Review committee during grant-giving years. Other UCCF committees include Fundraising, Membership, and Finance.
