"Utah Philanthropy Day is proud to be in its 14th year, honoring and recognizing some of the many volunteers and philanthropists who serve our nonprofit community," Denise Winslow, Utah Philanthropy Day committee chairwoman, said in a statement. "We look forward to this day each year so that we can highlight the extraordinary impact that nonprofits have on our community and celebrate the enormous spirit of giving we have in our state."

The Utah Nonprofits Association was formed in 1990 and is dedicated to building the capacity of Utah's nonprofit organizations. The Utah Society of Fund Raisers was established in 1985 to address and support the educational needs of Salt Lake City's growing population of development professionals.
