Welcome to O.U.R. Upper Nyack Kids

About Us

O.U.R. Upper Nyack Kids is a non-profit organization that manages The Carol Slaybaugh Fund and funds mini-grants that benefit our Upper Nyack children. We are funded through the school’s annual “Gala” and donations.

The Carol Slaybaugh Fund: A 25 Year Tradition

Carol Slaybaugh was the school nurse at Upper Nyack many years ago who lost her battle to cancer.  A fund was set up in her memory to continue the good deeds she had been quietly doing:  paying for kids’ glasses, winter clothing, field trip payments, camp scholarships and instrument rentals for students who would not otherwise be able to participate. The Slaybaugh Fund has been supporting children for the past 25 years.


O.U.R. UN Kids awards mini-grants that are based on merit. It may include curricular, extra-curricular, enrichment or remedial programs that target small or large groups of children. Projects may encourage a range of physical, creative, social and academic accomplishments.
