InfoRMATION For Applicants
About the Fund:
UCP Oregon’s mission is to support independence, productivity, and full citizenship for individuals touched by intellectual / developmental disabilities (I/DD). We believe in the power of real choice, real jobs, real homes, and real connections for all—a full life for those we serve.
It is clear that experiencing a full life can be extremely challenging, given the funding and service delivery systems that currently exist for who experience I/DD.
In an effort to remove barriers and support meaningful lives for our customers, UCP Oregon created the Bill Porter Memorial Fund in 2018.
To honor Bill’s legacy, the UCP Oregon Board of Directors designated $250,000 from agency assets to seed the fund. Guided by a fundraising, investment, and disbursement strategy, it is UCP Oregon’s intention to grow the principal to $1,000,000.
Anyone can refer an applicant; however, applicants must be receiving contracted supports from UCP Oregon, or be active within UCP’s Family Support Department, to be considered.
Department Directors, with oversight from UCP Oregon’s Board of Directors, will review applications for selection.
The most recent round of applications closed on April 19th at 5pm.
