On March 22, 2013, Utah will experience the biggest crowdfunding event in its history.
The Community Foundation of Utah is sponsoring the event in an effort to raise an unprecedented amount of money in a single day. Fraser Nelson, Executive Director of the Community Foundation of Utah, said:
“Similar events in states from Colorado to Florida have raised tens of millions of dollars and involved hundreds of thousands of people. The Park City Foundation raised $595,642 in 24 hours on November 16 for Summit County nonprofits.”
Love UT Give UT is looking to partner with companies in Utah to encourage their employees and customers to participate in this day of giving.
Nelson notes, “Companies like Energy Solutions, Questar, DropShip, MarketStar, Avalon Health Care, Orange Soda and IntegraCore are using this event as a way to position their company as an innovative industry and philanthropic leader.”
Finally, Nelson says:
The Foundation will take care of everything, your employees will be able to support the causes that matter to them, and your company will receive great recognition in the business and nonprofit community
Corporate participation does not require a commitment of substantial time or resources. Visit the Community Foundation of Utah website to learn more or contact Frazer Nelson at 801-559-3005.
