A Letter from the Chairman of the Board, Lyn Haston
Dear Colleagues,
United Charitable Programs (UCP) is a unique public charity which embodies the
ideals of empowering people to help people. We do this by providing the infrastructure
required to efficiently and effectively run charitable programs through the management of
Fiscally Sponsored Programs and Donor-Advised Funds.
Too many people who want to help come up against a quagmire of rules, restrictions, and expenses in setting up a charity.
The requirements and expenses to establish a non-profit corporation or private foundation, obtain government approval and
fund the administrative operations kill most good charitable ideas before they even get started. UCP pools these vital legal,
accounting and oversight infrastructures under one roof to allow charitable ideas to accelerate quicker, spend far less time
and money on administration and to focus more resources on charitable programs.
I came to know UCP through my own charitable passion. After 10 years of working with a metropolitan YMCA, I have run
a Fiscally Sponsored Program at UCP for more than 10 years, which has helped the community maintain quality sports and
arts programs in the public schools of Soquel and Santa Cruz, California. We have raised more than $100,000 over these
years to provide facility improvements and help hundreds of children
participate in sports programs and arts events.
UCP also helped my own real estate company – ERA Sellers, Buyers
& Associates – organize a Corporate Donor-Advised Fund to empower
our employees to make a bigger impact on their community. Through
automatic payroll deduction, our agents and employees easily make
donations to our fund, which pools these donated dollars and then
distributes them where they are most needed. We’ve enjoyed the process
of working together to make our charitable grants and have been able to
better recognize the needs in our community.
I am proud to have served as a member of the UCP Board of Directors
for two years and am honored to be its chairman. In 2012, our growth
in Fiscally Sponsored Programs and Donor-Advised Funds has been
tremendous, and we look forward to that continued growth in the coming
years.
The efficient model of UCP makes it perfectly poised to meet the
needs of charitably minded citizens seeking cost-effective ways to get
their donated dollars to the charitable
organizations they wish to serve.
Take a look. Get energized.
Empower yourself to serve!
All the best,
Lyn Haston
Chairman of the Board

A Letter from the Executive
Director, Jan Ridgely
Dear Charitable Enthusiast!
What if you immediately had a way to turn your wonderful
charitable idea into a reality?
What if you had a way to take away all of the
administrative, accounting, legal and oversight worry and
hassle to do it?
That’s exactly what United Charitable Programs is able to
offer to good people, great funders, and anyone with a terrific
charitable idea!
“No legal, organizational,
financial, corporate or
mission separation exists.
We are our projects, and
our projects are us.”
Fiscal sponsorship has evolved as an effective and efficient
mode of starting new nonprofits, seeding social movements,
and delivering public services. According to a recent
IRS report1, “Fiscal sponsors have the ability to receive charitable contributions for specific projects, the
infrastructure to ensure compliance with applicable federal and state laws, and adequate internal controls to
ensure that the funds will be used for the intended charitable purposes.”
UCP has been experiencing steady, solid growth of our Fiscally Sponsored Programs. We now manage
more than 500 active programs, which are located in 32 states and the District of Columbia. Our programs
support charitable activities abroad as well, with their donations reaching 12 different countries around the
world.
In 2012, we broadened the depth of services we provide to our programs including:
• State of the art online access to program account information in real time;
• Free learning opportunities through conferences, events, and webinars;
• Extended public awareness within social media outlets.
Increasingly, fiscal sponsorship is viewed by project leaders and funders alike, as a sustainable, costeffective way to manage a charitable initiative. Our program managers love us because they are able to spend
more time on their mission-related work and fundraising, and less on administrative details. Funders love us
because UCP offers a low-risk way to test new ideas by providing fledgling projects with a solid infrastructure
with a high level of regulatory and financial oversight.
There’s no better way to empower people to help others, learn the ropes of running a charitable program,
and direct more funds toward your charitable mission!
Let’s work together to make the world a better place!

A Directory of Our Fiscally Sponsored Programs
Our mission is to empower people to help others
by fiscally sponsoring targeted charitable programs
that encourage positive change through charitable,
educational, scientific, or religious actions worldwide.
Our programs vary in size, budget and scope, but all
share the desire to make a difference in the lives of
others.
UCP provides fiscal sponsorship as a cost-effective

administrative burdens which can inhibit doing good
works. We provide strict oversight of our programs to
