Leslie Bulion

Leslie Bulion, Leadership Donor & Past Camper

“In the summer of 1965 my father was University Settlement Camp's Work Camp director and my mother the Arts and Crafts counselor. I returned to USC a few years later, first a camper, then Work Camper, then Farm and Nature counselor. I spent those formative years steeped in University Settlement's vision and mission of our community and greater society as a healthier, more just, and equitable place for all. I am honored to help support University Settlement's continued, critically important work.”

Our Supporters - Tiger Foundation Logo

Tiger Foundation

The Tiger Foundation has been a long-time funder of University Settlement’s Butterflies program, which provides mental health services for children ages zero to five and their families. This innovative program has been especially critical given the increase in need during the pandemic, and we are grateful for the Tiger Foundation’s generous partnership in this important work.

Krishna Swamy

Krishna Swamy, Monthly Donor & Past Volunteer

“While in college, I tutored students on the weekends as part of University Settlement's Beacon Program. Once I began my professional career, I started thinking about the right way to support the Program's broader work, which, to me, meant something sustainable. I found a recurring donation to be the right choice. My intention is to provide the organization with something it can rely on each month. Personally, I appreciate how the regular contributions remind me of my connection to University Settlement, and how they give me the flexibility to scale my contribution to my means in the years ahead."

Our Supporters - O'Neill Foundation Logo

William J. Dorothy K. O’Neill Foundation

The O’Neill Foundation, a past supporter of our eviction prevention program, Project Home, currently provides University Settlement with critical general operating support. This flexible funding enables us to actualize our full settlement house model and serve the holistic needs of our families, which has been vital through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ria & Robyn Mar

Ría and Robyn Mar, Leadership Donors & Early Childhood Parents

“Our twins have been attending University Settlement’s Park Slope North early childhood program for the last two years. They absolutely love it and so do we - it’s such a special and supportive community. We know the organization ensures thousands of other families like us have the resources they need to succeed, and that’s why we’re proud to be their partner.“

The Achelis & Bodman Foundation

One of University Settlement’s newest funders, The Achelis & Bodman Foundation supports our Support Services for Homebound Seniors program. The foundation’s support has allowed us to further grow this one-of-a-kind program, which serves a highly vulnerable and traditionally underserved community with a range of in-person and virtual options.
