Since 2000, with the enthusiastic and generous support of the community, UPH has become a vital part of Saratoga’s cultural life. During that time, UPH has presented a multitude of events that used to bypass Saratoga; served as a catalyst for the continued redevelopment of Saratoga's downtown; and supported the region’s many local arts organizations by providing a first-class venue for community events.
Like virtually all non-profit performing arts centers, ticket sales to events make up only a fraction of the financial resources it takes each year to operate UPH. In order for UPH to continue to fulfill its public service mission we rely on the tax-deductible contributions of the community.

Many people leave a charitable gift in a will or living trust. You can set aside a specific dollar amount or leave a percentage of your estate or any assets left over after the family has been provided for. Another option is to name UPH as the beneficiary or contingent beneficiary of life insurance policies, funds from a savings or retirement account, or appreciated assets. Our attached brochure will provide additional information to assist you with your decision.
Gifts of stock, mutual funds, or other appreciated assets
A gift of stock, mutual funds, real estate or other appreciated assets can be an advantageous way to give. For example, you can donate a gift of stock without having to convert it to cash first, thus avoiding capital gains tax. Please see our attached brochure for additional information.
