"These organizations set a high standard for excellence in serving the people of Utah," said Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund.

The Daniels Fund will award a projected $1.6 million in grants to Utah nonprofits in 2012. Funding areas include: aging, alcoholism and substance abuse, amateur sports, disabilities, early childhood education, K-12 education reform, ethics and integrity in education, homeless and disadvantaged and youth development.

Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television who owned the ABA’s Utah Stars, established the Daniels Fund to operate the Daniels Fund Scholarship Program and the Daniels Fund Grants Program in Utah, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico.
