IP Communications for Nonprofits: An Appia Case Study
Founded in 1953, the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Greater Indiana (UCPAGI, www.ucpaindy.org) provides support and services to children and adults with cerebral palsy and their families.
With only two full-time staff members, UCPAGI delivers information, advocacy, and financial assistance to about 10,000 clients spread throughout all of Indiana’s 92 counties. The agency averages over 40 new clients each month and responds to nearly 2,000 requests each year.
UCPAGI does not charge any fees to the clients it serves, and it does not receive any federal, state or local government funding. Like all nonprofit agencies, UCPAGI is constantly looking for new ways to stretch scarce resources in support of its mission.
