UCP Humanitarian Wall of Fame
The Foundation for UCP

Join us in celebrating our previous UCP Humanitarians of the Year!

Each year, UCP selects an individual who has generously supported the community as the recipient of the UCP Humanitarian of the Year award. This year we could not hold the event.

One of our UCP Board Members had a great idea. Let’s celebrate all of our previous UCP Humanitarians through a virtual UCP Humanitarian Wall of Fame Celebration. Here is how it works!

The funds generated will build a brighter future for today’s children with autism, intellectual delay, Down syndrome, epilepsy and cerebral palsy.

Thank you to our Presenting Sponsor:

The Witan Challenge – RAISE $10,000 or More!

The partners of Witan Law  have donated $10,000 to the UCP Humanitarian Wall of Fame event and The Foundation for UCP. Their hope is that this donation will kick start other donations, with the goal of brightening the future of a child with a developmental disability.

The challenge for us is to generate at least another $10,000 to match Witan Law’s donation. Help us meet this challenge!

Presenting & Founding Sponsor

Douglas Bosley, a UCP of Sacramento and Northern California Board member, and founding partner of Witan Law, originated the idea for this year’s Humanitarian Wall of Fame.

Knowing how much UCP relied on the generous donations received in support of our annual Humanitarian event, and still wanting to honor UCP Humanitarians, but restricted by gathering because of COVID, he proposed holding a virtual event celebrating past recipients. This unique event allows us to celebrate all the work of past recipients, and at the same time, fund the future needs of individuals with disabilities. Thank you, Doug and Witan Law partners!
