Participate in This Year’s Love UT Give UT and You Might Win a 3-Year Lease on a Subaru

On Thursday, March 3oth, Utahns will come together to support nonprofit organizations and schools that strengthen and enrich our communities.

In 2016, 15,491 people donated $1,229,800 to 463 Utah nonprofit organizations and schools during the 24 hour online giving day. From their computers or phones, nonprofits and their supporters could watch donations go up in real time. Contributions poured in at an astonishing rate of $51,242 every hour, $854 every minute, and $14.23 every second.

This year when you give, you’ll also possibly receive… a Subaru! All eligible donors who make a donation to a nonprofit through Love UT Give UT between March 1-30 will be entered to win a 3 year lease on a brand new 2017 Subaru Impreza, thanks to presenting sponsor Mark Miller Subaru. Multiple entries are possible through multiple donations. Learn more about the car giveaway rules here.

Love UT Give UT demonstrates that everyone can be a philanthropist and contribute to the causes that matter most to them – their school, a favorite charity, or a specific need. It is a day for Utahns of all backgrounds to join together for a day of giving using an online platform, www.loveUTgiveUT.org.

The platform helps connect donors with causes and makes it easy for individuals to search for the organizations and issues that are important to them. Love UT Give UT helps nonprofits and schools showcase their work, introducing them to new audiences. Last year, 22% of all donors were new to the causes they supported, crucial to the sustainability of our region’s nonprofits.

Love UT Give UT multiplies the impact of individual donations in several ways. Many employers use Love UT Give UT to match employee donations to their favorite nonprofits, and corporations take the opportunity to support the organizations they care about with matching grants. Additionally, Love UT Give UT’s “leaderboard prizes” totaling $35,000 reward the nonprofits with the highest number of unique donors amongst organizations of similar size.

To celebrate our state’s collective generosity, numerous nonprofits across Utah will be hosting Love UT Give UT events throughout the day on Thursday, March 30 that are open to the public and media. For a complete list of events please email the Community Foundation of Utah at info@utahcf.org.
