The UNIS Fund is the annual giving appeal that helps us enhance our academic programs, service programs, the arts, and athletics.
Gifts to the UNIS Fund make a tangible difference in the teachers we hire, the international curriculum, language courses and enrichment programs we provide and the arts and athletic programs we offer.
The UNIS Board of Trustees, parents, alumni, past parents, grandparents, faculty and staff all make gifts to The UNIS Fund every year.
When giving to the UNIS Fund, you can decide where you would like your funds to go or allow the school to determine where those funds are best allocated.
UNIS Fund - General: supports the current year’s academic, arts, and athletic programs. The school will allocate the funds to the areas of greatest need.
UNIS Fund - Academics: supports this year's academic programs.
UNIS Fund - Arts: supports this year's visual and performing arts program.
UNIS Fund - Athletics: supports this year's athletics program.
UNIS Fund - Service: supports this year's service program.
A growing and vibrant UNIS Fund is vital to our mission to provide the best education for our students
UNIS, with the support of the Uy family, has set up the "Salvador Uy Memorial Scholarship Fund" in honor of the significant impact Sal has left on UNIS as a student, alumni, parent, and administrator.
This scholarship represents what Sal meant to UNIS, his family, and his friends. Sal was named the 1983 U Thant Scholar, the highest achievement that a UNIS graduate can receive.
The U Thant award is presented each year to a Tut 3 (11th grade) student at UNIS who is in high academic standing, whose life and contribution to the school have embodied the principles of the UN Charter, and whose activities and involvement at UNIS have clearly demonstrated respect for other individuals. Nominees for the award are screened for academic eligibility and are voted on by the Tutorial House Faculty based on selection criteria provided.
The Salvador Uy Memorial Scholarship will be granted to the U Thant Scholar to support financial expenses incurred during his/her senior year at UNIS. The Class of 2020, which Sal's son Oliver is part of, pledged $1,000 to start this fund. We plan to create an endowment fund for this scholarship to live in perpetuity.
