Our mission is to make philanthropy accessible by providing comprehensive management of charitable programs and donor-advised foundations on a community, national, or global level.


UCP provides fiscal sponsorship as a cost-effective way for charitable programs of any size and scope to be efficiently and effectively managed. UCP relieves the administrative burdens which can inhibit doing good works. We provide strict oversight of our programs to ensure compliance with 501(c)(3) nonprofit regulations. We strive to uphold the highest standards in charitable program management so that our programs can focus on what they do best – helping those in need, whether in their own community, across the nation or on the other side of the globe.


Anyone can establish a Fiscally Sponsored Program, or a Donor-Advised Foundation at UCP. The charitable programs that we accept and sponsor at UCP will be able to have tax-exempt status under our auspices. We strive to share ournonprofit operational knowledge and expertise with our programs to help them grow and thrive. UCP performs the various administrative tasks for these programs so that they can make an impact and create a progressive, positive social change in our world.
