Ursula Hubby Fund for the Arts

Headshot of Ursula Hubby

Ursula loved to teach. That is why she dedicated her 31-year career to shaping the minds of 5th and 6th grade children at Edward Smith and Elmwood Elementary schools in Syracuse. Her colleagues kept her in high regard for her dedication to helping her students succeed.

Music, in particular, played a significant part in Ursula’s life and brought great enrichment to her family. She fondly remembered her times dancing with her husband as members of the Top Hats Dance Club. She was excited to learn about the Carrie Lazarus Fund for Extraordinary Talent, a cause that blended two of her passions – education and music. The fund helps performing arts students with financial need reach their fullest potential by funding the expenses of lessons, instruments and other special opportunities. She made a regular pastime of watching Carrie’s television specials and the talented student performers the fund supports.

Over her 97 years, Ursula Hubby’s generosity and kindness benefited countless Central New Yorkers. Her caring spirit will be carried on through her charitable legacy, which will continue to help others for generations. The Ursula T. Hubby Fund for the Arts will provide annual support to the Carrie Lazarus Fund for Extraordinary Talent.
