Who We Are

United Charitable Programs (UCP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our vision is to cultivate the essence of philanthropy by empowering people to help people.


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


By fiscally sponsoring and supporting these individual projects in different charitable areas in a transparent and cost-effective manner, UCP is able to affect constructive social change at a grassroots level. Through a fiscal sponsor relationship with these charitable projects, UCP provides nonprofit benefits without the burdens.


What We Do

The charitable projects that we accept and sponsor at UCP would be able to have tax-exempt status under our auspices, as long as these projects remain in good-standing. We strive to share our knowledge and expertise with our projects to help them grow and succeed. UCP performs the various administrative tasks and oversight for these projects so that they make an impact and create a progressive, positive social change in our world.


The successful Program Managers are social entrepreneurs who use the opportunity to partner with UCP in order to grow their charitable projects to potentially self-sustainable levels.
