Uehling Area Foundation
The Uehling community has always been proud of its alumni, community people and friends of Uehling. Our friendly small town atmosphere is something that can’t be found in a large city. The term “town pride” is what Uehling people have believed in and it shows in our support for our town and Logan View School.
To help ensure our town’s life style we have developed the Uehling Area Community Foundation in 2010. It’s purpose is to receive, administer and distribute funds for community improvements. These funds can only be used for community projects such as park and town improvements. Our Foundation can guarantee progress for town improvements for years to come: Working together for the best small town in Nebraska.
The Uehling Area Foundation has a local Board of Directors who receive and administer funds donated to the Foundation. The board will also make recommendations for the disbursement of funds for improvements in the Uehling area. The Board is dedicated to practically managing the assets, as well as disbursing grants as determined by a majority of the members. The local foundation is an affiliate fund of the Fremont Area Community Foundation, a tax exempt, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose funds must be utilized for charitable needs.
