UCS is the first National Palestinian non-profit and independent union of non-governmental charitable and developmental societies that was established in Jerusalem in 1958. It strives to build an effective Palestinian civil society through advancing the Palestinian civil work in an institutionalized and democratic manner and according to good governance and accountability standards in order to contribute to national building and sustainable development.


UCS aims mainly at empowering the members' organizations of UCS in Palestine, developing their resources and advocating for their rights and causes. It also strives for supporting sectoral development priorities in the fields of social welfare, poverty reduction, health, education, childhood, women and youth empowerment, integration of the disabled people, elderly care, human development and demographic planning.


About (150) Palestinian NGOs are members in UCS. They are located in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho and Ramallah, but they operate in all the governorates in various humanitarian and developmental fields and specializations. The UCS' membership adopts various managerial, financial, programmatic and legal criteria while emphasizing on the principles of social justice and equal opportunities for all without any discrimination based on sex, color, religion, political affiliation or ideological belief.
