UCP Michigan is thankful for the loyal and generous donors who have supported our events and assisted us though the years.

Have you considered supporting the UCP Michigan with a planned gift?

A planned gift may take various forms and is a wonderful way to support the UCP Michigan. Gifts should be designated to the United Cerebral Palsy of Michigan.



UCP Michigan accepts gifts of cash, securities and real estate made through the following avenues:

  •   A gift in a will or trust – Remembering UCP Michigan with a gift in your will or trust is an excellent legacy for you and your family.

  • Retirement plans – Consider a gift from your tax-deferred retirement assets including IRA, 401K, 403b, or pension.

  • Charitable Gift Annuity or Remainder Trust – Make a gift to fund a life income arrangement. The benefits include lifetime payments or payments over a term of years, an income tax deduction this year and capital gains tax saving when funded with appreciated assets. After you have received all payments, the remainder helps further UCP Michigan’s mission.

  • Charitable Lead Trust – After a term of variable or fixed gifts to UCP Michigan, your trust assets are transferred back to your family and loved ones. The trust provides sustainable tax savings to you each year.

  • Life Insurance – You are able to donate an unneeded paid life insurance policy or name the United Cerebral Palsy of Michigan as a beneficiary on your policy.

  • Cash gift – Make a gift of cash this year, benefit from an income tax deduction and know that UCP Michigan will put your money to good use.


To honor those supporters who have chosen to leave a planned gift to UCP Michigan, we will:


  • Recognize you at our Annual Awards Luncheon

  • Give recognition in our annual report and newsletter

  • Award two passes for our Annual Skate Without Limits Red Wing Charity Hockey Event

  • Give you the knowledge and comfort that the work of UCP Michigan will continue both during and after your lifetime
