For 75 years, UCP’s mission has supported individuals with disabilities through education, advocacy, and research. With 56 affiliates across the United States and Canada, UCP continues to look for ways to help more people each year. Over 154,000 people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities are served by the UCP network.
In 2024, UCP has a unique opportunity as it celebrates its 75th Anniversary. We are taking advantage of this special anniversary year by running a year-long campaign to include more reach outs and create more synergy than ever before.
This means more exposure for our 2024 Corporate Partners that comes in the form of recognition at our 2024 events, on social media, on our website, through fundraising and awareness campaigns, and more.
Celebrate United Cerebral Palsy’s 75th Anniversary with us. Share your commitment to the disability community and social good with high-impact collaborations and giving strategies.
