UCP/Detroit 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/Detroit with a planned gift?

A planned gift may take various forms and is a wonderful way to support the UCP/Detroit. Gifts should be designated to the United Cerebral Palsy of Metropolitan Detroit (tax id number 38-1368516).



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

  •   A gift in a will or trust – Remembering UCP/Detroit 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/Detroit’s mission.

  • Charitable Lead Trust – After a term of variable or fixed gifts to UCP/Detroit, 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 Metropolitan Detroit 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/Detroit will put your money to good use.


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


  • Recognize you at our Annual Awards Luncheon

  • Give recognition in our annual report and newsletter

  • Award two passes for our Annual UCP/Detroit Red Wing Charity Hockey Event

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