Celebrating Utah's Philanthropists

heart-hand-awardEach November since 1999, the Utah Society of Fund RaisersUtah Nonprofits Association, and now UServeUtah have celebrated Utah's outstanding philanthropists and volunteer leaders at the annual Philanthropy Day Luncheon.

In its first year, Utah Philanthropy Day recognized some very prestigious members of our community such as Jon and Karen Huntsman, Sr., Harris and Amanda Simmons and the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation. It was an honor to celebrate these fine individuals and organizations, and to continue to do so each year, carrying out the tradition of recognizing the ultimate in compassion brought forth in our community.

Seven prestigious awards honor the various components of the critical nexus between visionary, supportive philanthropy and thriving, creative nonprofit organizations that respond to community concerns and the need for change.

Tables & tickets for 2016 will be available soon!

Tickets will be available for purchase soon! Stay tuned!
