Each November since 1999, the Utah Society of Fund Raisers and the Utah Nonprofits Association 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.
Six 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.
This year's lunch will be held Thursday, November 8th at Little America, 500 South Main Street. We encourage you to carpool or take TRAX to ease the parking congestion. Limited parking is available at Little America. Registration is from 11:30am to 12:00pm with the lunch ending at 1:30pm.
