The Henry C. Ulen Foundation

 

The Henry C. Ulen Foundation, named for the founder and benefactor of Ulen Country Club and the Town of Ulen, was incorporated in the state of Indiana as a charitable, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) entity on September 22, 2010. It is a separate and distinct legal entity from Ulen Country Club and the Town of Ulen and is governed by its own Board of Directors with its own set of Bylaws.

The Henry C. Ulen Foundation’s primary purpose is to preserve, maintain and enhance the historical integrity and significance of Ulen Country Club, its historic clubhouse and golf course, and the Town of Ulen, all listed in 2015 on the National Register of Historic Places.
Ulen C.C. and the Town of Ulen may both be assisted through Foundation grant requests for capital projects which are approved by the Henry C. Ulen Foundation’s Board of Directors. Approved grants enhance Ulen Country Club and the Town of Ulen for members, potential members, and Ulen residents.  Listing on the National Register of Historic Places also provides many state and federal opportunities for specific preservation incentives, grants, and benefits.
The Foundation has been funded by individual and corporate grants.  The benefits of donating to The Henry C. Ulen Foundation include tax deductible donations for the donor, funding for maintenance and updating of Ulen Country Club that the membership would otherwise be required to fund, and other projects within the Town of Ulen.
Donations can be made via a member’s monthly club bill, by credit card, or by check made to the Henry C. Ulen Foundation at 100 Country Club Drive, Lebanon, IN 46052. 
Further questions about the Henry C. Ulen Foundation may be directed to any of its Board of Directors: Kent Frandsen, president; Pete Obremskey, vice president; Josh Kammerer, treasurer; Sally Tanselle, secretary; Janet Dollard, Randy Francis, Mary Anne Herny, Kerek Johnson, Kerry Kries, and Chip Werry.

The 2022 Matching Funds Program

Our fall funding drive is now under way. From the first of October through the end of the year, all donations up to $100,000 will be matched by the L.J. Falke Trust, doubling the impact of your gift.

The Impact of Your Gift

Historical Preservation and Community Support

Century-old buildings require regular investment. Your donations help us maintain the Ulen Country Club buildings, as well as its grounds, workspaces, dining facilities and golf course. Listing on the National Register of Historic Places also provides many state and federal opportunities for specific preservation incentives, grants, and benefits.

 

Recent building projects have included roof repairs, clubhouse carpeting, and bathroom, kitchen and bar renovations.  The Foundation has also contributed to installation of new trees, bunkers and driving range mats for the golf course.  Foundation funding has also been used to help UCC employees, through installation of new computer servers, software, and training.

 

Community Support

HCUF also provides some financial assistance to the Town of Ulen for improvements to its utilities, roads, resident services and events. Earlier this year, the Foundation purchased, installed and celebrated the dedication of a new historical marker near the entrance to the clubhouse. Funds are also currently being provided for the installation of parking lot lights and streetlights along Country Club Boulevard.

 

Since 2015, more than $200,000 has been used for improvements to the club and community.  However, we anticipate that as much as $500,000 t0 $600,000 more will be needed within the next 5 years.

 

Projects You Designate

If you prefer to see your gift used for a specific project, your donation can be earmarked for that purpose. Let us know what you’d like to see accomplished.

If you have an idea for a larger project, the Foundation invites proposals for grant requests from any member of the community.  Grants must be approved by the HCUF Board of Directors.
