Utah Philanthropy Day
Philanthropy is the giving of time, energy, knowledge, or money to help others. For the past 10 years, Utah has led the nation in volunteering.
National Philanthropy Day was designated in 1986 by President Ronald Regan, and since then communities across the country have celebrated by hosting events to recognize activities of volunteers, foundations, leaders, and others engaged in philanthropy. In Utah, we celebrate during the second week in November with the Utah Philanthropy Day luncheon, where we honor specific individuals and organizations who have been nominated by those they have served.
The Association of Fundraising Professionals Utah Chapter, the Utah Nonprofits Association, and UServeUtah will celebrate outstanding philanthropists on November 17, carrying out the tradition of recognizing the ultimate in compassion brought forth in our community. Seven prestigious awards honor various leaders and nonprofits that respond to community concerns and the need for change.
SelectHealth recognizes the spirit of giving back at Utah Philanthropy Day as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
