Donations to Causes

Dear CDP Causes Admin:

I noticed that you have set up a Facebook Cause set up to benefit your program under Congressional District Programs. As of April 1, 2011, Congressional District Programs will not accept donations to your program.

If you have a "Facebook Cause" page for your CDP charitable program, you can change the beneficiary to United Charitable Programs (UCP) without losing your current supporters. Just log in to your Causes as the Administrator, and click on the fundraising tab on the left side. From there you will be able to change your nonprofit beneficiary to United Charitable Programs.

If you would like to create a new Cause for your Program at UCP, please click here (

The Cause that you create for your program will list United Charitable Programs as the beneficiary. Funds are sent directly to UCP and will be allocated specifically to your Program at UCP.

Please change your beneficiary to UCP before April 1 so you won't lose any donations! If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact me.
