of United People Global (UPG)
Individuals and organisations who believe in our mission to encourage and enable people to participate in making the world a better place. We act independently and collectively and our activities are based on UPG’s Four Pillars. These are also known as UPG's "ABCs":
UPG is a community with a shared purpose. Everyone’s independence is protected and just as we encourage people to get things done their own way, we also encourage people to work together. And sometimes we have official UPG initiatives that we can all contribute to, if we choose to.
Sometimes we sign up to the initiatives or opportunities posted by others.
All of the time, we are available to each other to exchange ideas, support one another.
The service and contribution of Champions makes everything possible.
Opportunities to participate directly in the operations of the UPG community, this includes the opportunity to serve on local, regional, global committees, taskforces, councils and more.
Opportunity to lead UPG initiatives or programs. These initiatives can be local or global, national or regional.
Champions are acknowledged. and they “shine” in our world because they make everything possible
Access to initiatives that are designed for people with higher commitment to UPG’s mission
Becoming a Champion is an additional commitment that can be as light or as intensive as you want. A Champion agrees to serve others and so the benefits of becoming a Champion are largely about serving.
Access to funding that supports activities related to UPG’s missions
Opportunities to participate in activities that are reserved for Champions, such as the “Communities of Champions”
For Organisations who decide to become Champions, benefits include additional opportunities for your organisation’s own initiatives.
For Organisations who decide to become Champions, benefits include extending the above benefits to up to 3 individuals in your organisation.
Champions make an annual financial contribution. For individuals this is CHF 50 (about USD 50). For organisations, this ranges from CHF 250 (about CHF 250) upwards. To ensure that money is never an obstacle, individuals and organisations who are Champions but who cannot afford the contribution can apply for support.
Champion Supporters are acknowledged in UPG’s annual report and on
our website for the year(s) in which they are Champion Supporters.
Builders are the first people who make significant commitment to the UPG Community at the start of its existence. All those who are accepted as Champions within the first year of UPG’s operations are part of the UPG Builders community where their commitment is registered, immortalised and their legacy is assured. No separate application is needed. To check if someone is a Builder, please visit: www.unitedpeople.global/ourbuilders
Champions who want to work together on UPG’s mission in their local community can join or set up a community of champions. This allows people who share a similar level of commitment to work closely together for the benefit of their local community. Communities of Champions practice UPG’s Four Pillars (above) through initiatives that they choose. Sometimes they create an initiative themselves, sometimes they take a good idea that is already working somewhere and they adapt it to address a local challenge. And there is much more.
