UCP Foundation

Funding the Future of Today’s Children with Disabilities

Leave your legacy to the Foundation for UCP. Your gift will ensure today’s children with developmental disabilities have the support they need in the future. As a result of planning now,  you can ensure today’s children and tomorrow’s adults will have the programs and services they need, for years to come.

Meet Shelby

She’s an amazing young girl who was born with a developmental disability that keeps her in a wheelchair. But that hasn’t stopped her from thriving.

Will you still be there to help when she’s 20, 30 and 40 and continues to need UCP programs & services?

Do something amazing. Help make sure Shelby, and clients like her, have your support as they continue to age and thrive. Leave a Legacy gift to the Foundation for UCP. Learn more about Shelby.

Your Legacy Gift Helps Many

As a result of your support of the Foundation for UCP, children and adults with  autism, intellectual disability, Down syndrome, epilepsy and cerebral palsy will be helped.  Currently, autism is the number one diagnosed developmental disability.  Consequently, 51% of UCP’s current clients have autism.  These clients, and their families will require ongoing support for decades to come. For that reason alone, your legacy gift to the Foundation for UCP will help ensure individuals with developmental disabilities have a brighter future.

Anyone can afford to leave a Legacy gift

A Legacy Gift is a donation that you make now for the future of today’s children. Your Legacy Gift continues what you are doing now – helping others.

Easy ways to leave a legacy gift:

  • Name The Foundation for UCP (EIN 26-3279530) as a beneficiary in your life insurance or trust documents. This is as easy as a phone call or email to your broker or accountant.  You can allocate a set amount or a percentage for your legacy gift.
  • Include a legacy paragraph in your will and/or trust documents. By naming The Foundation for UCP in your will, estate, life insurance policy or trust, or by donating property and stock to UCP, you can leave a legacy that will help individuals with development disabilities for years to come.  Find out more.

Meet Emma.

Emma was a single, hard-working mother of a child with a developmental disability. Emma knew she wouldn’t always be around to care for her son, Dickie, so she invested in programs that would. When she passed, she left her home to UCP. Her simple, generous gift helps ensure UCP’s programs and services are funded so children and adults with developmental disabilities will be cared for in the future…now that’s amazing!
