Hi, this is Corrie!
It's the holiday season, and many of us are feeling stretched a little thin. So, I wanted to share a free (and easy) way to make a difference... without spending a dime!
Did you know that you can raise money for UCP, simply by shopping?
It's true. Simply select "UCP Oregon" as your charity via Amazon's Smile program, and then use www.smile.amazon.com as your starting point whenever you shop on Amazon. We’ll get a donation every time you shop.
You can raise free money at Fred Meyer's, too!
I've personally raised $61.39 for UCP. It feels great knowing I'm making a difference all year long.
Join the movement that is #GivingTuesday!
Today, November 29th, millions of people around the world are taking the time to support the causes they care about the most.
We are asking YOU to donate to UCP Oregon. Your donation will make a big difference for the 800 families and 1,000 adults with disabilities that we currently support in Oregon.
Donate to UCP Oregon today!
Alas, as you may have guessed, there will be no 2022 Walk, Roll 'n' Run (WRR).
The WRR is UCP Oregon's biggest special event. It raises funds for the hundreds of families and kids who use the services of our Family Support Department.
So we're going to need your help more than ever!
That's why we're asking you to donate in your usual amount. Or even consider donating more! Every dollar makes a huge difference.
As you know, UCP Oregon believes in the power of real choice, real jobs, real homes, and real connections for all—a full life for those we serve.
But it’s obvious that, in many cases, experiencing a full life can be extremely challenging, given the funding and service delivery systems that currently exist for people with developmental disabilities.
That’s why we launched the Bill Porter Memorial Fund (BPMF) in 2018.
The BPMF is designed to assist our customers to experience a full life, however that might look for each customer. Customers have applied for funding for:
We’re excited to announce that we’ll be opening the 2022 BPMF application process on February 1, 2022.
Note: Applicants must be currently receiving services from UCP Oregon to be considered.
Today is “Giving Tuesday.”
Giving Tuesday is an opportunity for you to show your love and support for the communities and causes that matter to you.
Are YOU in?

We were just asked, in honor of Disability Pride Month, if UCP Oregon participates in "Amazon Smile"--you know, the way you can raise FREE MONEY for your FAVORITE NON-PROFIT when shopping on Amazon. (Because, obviously, UCP Oregon is your favorite non-profit ever.)
Well, guess what! We DO participate in Amazon Smile!
Below is a link that tells you how to set it up.
PS: The process only takes a few seconds. After that, you'll be raising free money for UCP every time you shop on Amazon!
