Giving Tuesday 2020

Thank you for considering United Cerebral Palsy of Mobile for you Giving Tuesday gift! Please support us by contributing to our donation page, or by creating your own. If you plan to create your own page, please feel free to share your own personal story and the impact that UCP has had in your life, or the impact you have witnessed UCP have on others.

The help and generosity of people like you makes a lasting impact on those we serve. UCP’s mission is to promote the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities. Any contribution you make today will help individuals in our community meet and exceed their goals!

In addition, we have an anonymous donor who has agreed to match every donation up to $6,000. This means that your gift will have an even greater impact! A $25 gift is transformed to a $50 gift, $500 is now $1,000!

All proceeds from the 2020 Giving Tuesday Campaign will benefit UCP Preschool and Camp SMILE. These programs have both touched so many lives.

A gift made to UCP Preschool will assist teachers and aids in ensuring our classrooms are safe, healthy and educational for every student who walks through our doors. For example, a gift of $25 can be used to purchase new classroom manipulatives. A gift of $100 can be used sensory integration lab equipment. Many of our students have trouble putting together information from all of their senses which can lead to difficulty in the classroom and with activities of daily living.  The SI Lab will be a combination of activities and equipment that our students can use to help them learn to organize their sensory input, self regulate and have improved independence and motor planning ability!

Gifts benefitting Camp SMILE open the doors to adventure for many campers. A gift as small as $15 could help pay for one camper’s entire week of art supplies. Many of our art projects are sensory driven, and reflect the theme of the summer. Each year, a homemade picture frame craft is completed so that campers may hang their camper-counselor picture from the summer.  A $380 gift provides a Campership for a camper who could otherwise not afford to attend!

Any gift you make is important to those we serve and we appreciate your heartfelt consideration!
