Uncommon Individual Foundation (UIF)


The Uncommon Individual Foundation (UIF), an NCCRS member since January 2023, is a registered 501(c)(3) endowed nonprofit based in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. In 1986, Dr. Richard E. Caruso, founder and former CEO of Integra Life Sciences, created UIF - an organization that helps people use mentoring as a means to improve their lives while making positive contributions to society. UIF’s philanthropic focus uses ONTRACK Plus - a learning management system that provides underserved and under-represented high school students with FREE self-directed and live learning opportunities that include high school navigation and college preparation, scholarships, and grant-funded college-level courses.  UIF reaches approximately 6,000 to 8,000 students annually with virtual and in-person programming.
