nonprofits and schools on the state’s fifth annual 24-hour day of giving

Salt Lake City - On Thursday, March 30, Utahns will again show their generosity by participating in Love UT Give UT, a 24 hour online giving event hosted by the Community Foundation of Utah and presented by Mark Miller Subaru.

“Love UT Give UT has raised over $4.2 million for hundreds of Utah charities and schools. Last year Love UT Give UT raised $1.23 million in just 24 hours. On March 30th, we hope to raise another $1.7 million for participating organizations across Utah,” said Alex Eaton, Executive Director at the Community Foundation of Utah.

For the first time, Mark Miller Subaru is the presenting sponsor of Love UT Give UT. “Mark Miller Subaru brings to Love UT Give UT our extensive marketing resources and customer network to help attract new donors that will bolster fundraising for Utah nonprofits,” said Jeff Miller, General Manager at Mark Miller Subaru. “Charitable giving is a major part of the work we do and is valued greatly by our employees; in fact, since 2010, Mark Miller Subaru has given $1,174,846.99 to local charitable organizations,” added Miller.

Love UT Give UT is a day for all Utahns to come together and make a difference through www.loveUTgiveUT.org.
The web platform opened for donations on March 1, 2017, culminating in the 24 hour day of giving on March 30, 2017.

Love UT Give UT multiplies the impact of individual donations through employee giving partnerships, matching gifts, and “leaderboard prizes” totaling $35,000, rewarding the nonprofits with the highest number of donors. And, anyone who donates through the Love UT Give UT web portal will be eligible to win a 3 year lease on a 2017 Subaru Impreza.
