At The UGLI Foundation, we envision a world where we’re all kind to each other. A world where we accept and embrace our differences as beauty. We created UGLI – UNIQUE, GIFTED, LOVED, INDIVIDUAL – because we believe this can be a reality. We believe if we all work together, we can end bullying. Forever.
Bullying affects everyone. It happens at school, work and in our communities. It also follows us home on social media and digital platforms. We need to talk about these problems and confront them head on, so we know who and how to help before it’s too late.
We created the UGLI Club Grant to accomplish our long-term vision to end the chain of hate. Join us and take action so future generations can live a reality filled with love and encouragement.
The UGLI Foundation awards the UGLI Club Grant to middle and high schools working to address bullying. The funds serve as a one-time financial contribution towards the launch of an UGLI Club, a place of support for those who have been bullied, and an inclusive community focused on spreading love and kindness.
Grant recipients must utilize the funds to create an UGLI Club and be able to deliver meaningful and measurable results.
