Help UCPLA spread awareness by wearing GREEN on Fridays!


We are proud of our ongoing alliance with athletic apparel company


To help UCPLA spread awareness about cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities, they designed tee shirts for our Los Angeles Wears Green campaign.  Green is the awareness color for cerebral palsy.

The86ers are donating 30% of the sale of each Los Angeles Wears Green tee shirts to UCPLA in support of our 40 programs and services that individuals with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism and other developmental disabilities rely on each day.

Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)


If you are at least 70 ½ years old, when planning out your 2016 year-end donation to UCPLA, remember that with passage of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015, the QCD provision is now a permanent part of the Internal Revenue Code.   


  • You must be at least 70½ years old at the time you request a QCD.


  • For a QCD to count towards your 2016 Minimum Required Distribution (MDR), the funds must come out of your IRA by your MRD deadline, which is generally December 31 each year.


  • A contribution to an organization, like UCPLA, that would qualify as a charitable organization under Sec. 170(b(1)(a), other than a private foundation or donor advised fund.


  • Funds must be transferred directly from your IRA custodian to the qualifying charity you select.  Request your IRA custodian to issue a check from your IRA payable to the qualifying charity.  IRA checks can be made payable to UCPLA, and mailed to:


  6430 Independence Avenue

Woodland Hills, CA  91367

  •  The maximum annual distribution amount that can qualify for a QCD is $100,000. If you’re a joint tax filer, both you and your spouse can make a $100,000 QCD from your own IRAs.




Be sure to consult your financial adviser and tax professional before implementing planned giving alternatives, as they carry complex tax implications.
