Spring is time for Love Utah Give Utah, an annual statewide fundraising event for Utah's non-profits. The online event is taking place on Thursday, March 20th, 2014.
Last year, over 6,500 individuals participated in the fundraising drive, raising $800,000 for 357 different causes throughout Utah. In 2013, the top small non-profit fundraiser was Utah FACES (Friends of Animal Care and Effective Solutions). They had a total of 158 unique donors and raised $7,227 on the day of the event. The money raised helped them to purchase a new x-ray machine for animals that were brought into their care.
There are over 50 animal related causes participating in the Love Utah Give Utah event this year. Among the non-profits are Friends of Animals, Humane Society of Utah, Utah FACES, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, Intermountain Therapy Animals and non-dog-specific causes such as Ching Farm Rescue, Noble Horse Sanctuary and Hawkwatch.
You can schedule your donation in advance to as many different charities as you desire. Just $10 can make a difference and provide a microchip to help a lost dog return home to his family.
Love Utah Give Utah is a great day to donate and your dollars go further in many cases with several companies participating in match grants. This type of online event has been very successful in raising millions of dollars and bringing new donors to organizations across the country.
