Due to a change in the strategic direction of United Way of Central Minnesota, United Cerebral Palsy of Central Minnesota is no longer a partner in the United Way. United Way has changed their focus areas and the current programs of UCP no longer fit into United Way's priority funding categories. After over forty years as a United Way agency, UCP-CM will have a $49,000 annual loss in funding due to these changes in priorities. We will continue to serve individuals and families affected by the daily challenges of living with a disability in central Minnesota to the best of our ability, but we will need to find other sources of funding to make this possible. Please help us continue to serve these families and individuals and make a difference in their lives. You can donate now on our website, Facebook page or designate your United Way pledge directly to UCP.
Your support helps to fund the following services to families:

Your support will make a difference in someone's life and help them achieve greater independence.
