The Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University


With your help, look what we can do...

On October 7th, 2011 we dedicated a new therapeutic playground at the CPD which is the direct result of private donations. This playground serves as a powerful example of the type of impact the generosity of our friends can have when combined with the talent and dedication of our staff. Whether you are a donor, volunteer or staff member of the CPD your support has been critical to our success over the last 40 years. In the coming months we hope you will decide to renew your support of this Center and ensure its important work continues for the next 40 years.

Bryce Fifield - CPD DirectorIn 2012 the CPD will be celebrating its 40th anniversary. It is important that we honor the accomplishments of the past, and the courage, vision and perseverance of all who have worked to advance the mission of this center over the last four decades. We also have a profound responsibility to continue their legacy. We believe there is no better way to do that, than to mark this milestone by renewing our commitment to providing vital resources for persons with disabilities for the next 40 years, and beyond. We are also asking our friends and our community to give back to the programs that have been so important to those whose lives have been impacted by disability. With your support, not only will these programs be able to continue to serve our community, but they will be able to grow and serve even more people.

Zions Bank gave $10,000 to support the CPD's 35th Anniversary.

Zions Bank recently gave $10,000 to support the CPD's 35th Anniversary Celebration. Funding will be used to bring Team Hoyt to Utah. Team Hoyt is a motivational presentation that focuses on a "You Can" attitude. Team Hoyt will be part of 2007 USU Homecoming and USU Convocations and Lectures activities. Zions Bank is committed to improving the quality of life for their customers by enthusiastically engaging in community issues and offering creative financing solutions to challenging community needs. In April, Zions Bank gave another $10,000 to the CPD to fund several community based projects. Funding is being used by the Traumatic Brain Injury project to develop information resources for rural Utah, the Up to 3 early intervention program to serve rural families, and the Assistive Technology Laboratory to provide adaptive technology to two children with disabilities. Zions Bank is a great CPD supporter providing over $20,000 to help us Make a Difference.
