Join the Coalition in Fighting Hunger this Thanksgiving 
This is why your donation matters...
Over the past 32 years, UAC has fed more than 150,000 residents in the Greater Philadelphia Region during the holiday season through its annual Thanksgiving Basket Program. For 11 years, UAC has partnered with Brown's Family ShopRite and their vendors who provide all of the meal trimmings including fresh fruits, vegetables, side dishes, desserts, beverages and more. However, to make each Thanksgiving dinner complete and feed 2,000 families this year, UAC must purchase the turkeys valued at more than $27,000. 

Your donation would help us purchase the turkeys and ensure families in need have a complete meal. Even a small donation of $25 will bring us closer to our goal!
Click here to make your donation today!
This is UAC's largest annual internal community service project and as a supporter of the Coalition, we hope you will join us in our fight against hunger. For more information about donating to the program or ways in which your company or organization can sponsor families this Thanksgiving, please email Felicia Harris at

Managing government funding is one of the most complex issues facing smaller nonprofits in today's financial climate. Sometimes, small nonprofits won’t go after these funds because they are too complex.  At UAC, we help you manage your government grants and contracts while ensuring you stay compliant with all the rules you must follow. UAC will help you manage all of your funders' requirements and provide you cash flow support while you wait for your government funding to reach you.

If you’d like to see how UAC can help you and your organization, please call or email our Manager of Partnerships and Outreach, Tivoni Devor 215-851-1936 or
#PartnerTuesdays with Prevent HIV Project

“UAC’s fiscal sponsorship for PHP (Preventing HIV Project) has been essential to our success. We are a small organization and would otherwise not be able to handle all of the payroll, billing and other financial services that UAC provides us. It’s fair to say that UAC keeps us alive!
- David R. Fair, PHP Advisory Board Member

UAC held two Health & Wellness Fairs for its employees and partners this past month. This is part of UAC's annual wellness initiative hosted by its Human Resources department. Attendees receive seasonal flu shots, blood pressure screenings, one-on-one consultations with a nutritionist and more!

Community & Economic Development (CED) Interim Director Shante Antrom and her team attended local community events to educate residents about UAC's Home Buy Now, PHIL-Plus and Mini-PHIL loan programs and how to avoid predatory loans and contractor scams.

UAC's Friends of the Coalition will host a private reception immediately following the 46th Anniversary Breakfast next Friday, November 20th. This will be an opportunity to meet current UAC Friends of the Coalition and learn how to join the network. RSVP to to attend!
