The UFCW 227 Foundation is about people coming together to build better lives for themselves. It is about creating opportunity. That is why each year our Foundation awards five promising students pursuing post-secondary education a $2,000 Scholarship. UFCW Local 227 members, their spouses and dependents are eligible to apply. These scholarships are awarded to traditional and non-traditional students attending a four-year college or university as well as students attending a two-year community/ technical college or trade school. Applications for the 2017 Scholarship will be available the week after Thanksgiving.
A major source of funding for the UFCW 227 Foundation Scholarship Program are the funds generated from renting the UFCW 227 Union Hall (3330 Pinecroft Dr., Louisville, KY 40219) to UFCW 227 members, family and their friends. If you’re interested in booking our union hall for your next wedding, birthday party or holiday event call our offices at (502) 582-3508 and dial “0”.
