Benefits of Affiliation

UCP Affiliates are leaders in providing innovative programs and services to more than 176,000 children and adults with disabilities every day. Our volunteers are engaged ambassadors helping us fulfill our mission to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities through an affiliate network.

As one of the nation’s leading organizations serving and advocating for the more than 54 million Americans with disabilities, UCP understands that organizations that provide services for people with disabilities are facing a competitive and challenging environment unlike ever before. UCP and its national network of Affiliates know first-hand the landscape that service providers face today, and are positioned to assist these organizations in many ways including:

  • Affiliate Driven Marketing and Communications
  • Development of additional sources of revenue through our corporate sponsorships
  • Expanding the reach of your mission through our advocacy and public affairs efforts.
  • Best practices in programs and fundraising activities.

 

As one of the nation’s largest and most well-known health charities, United Cerebral Palsy is an accredited organization known for its service-based, affiliate-focused structure. UCP’s strength as a national network grows out of a long history of service to Affiliates as an advisor, supporter, and partner. UCP Affiliates receive products, solutions and opportunities to network and share information and expertise with other service providers and advocates.

UCP is driven by the needs of the people served through the Affiliate network, which is entrepreneurial and constantly growing to serve the needs of their communities. Our future lies in leveraging innovation to fulfill the promise of a life without limits for people with disabilities, and it is through the Affiliates that progress is being made.
