The Utah Natural Heritage Fund

The Utah Natural Heritage Fund is dedicated to ensuring future generations of Utahns have the ability to prosper and enjoy Utah’s natural heritage.

 

Our Goals

The Utah Natural Heritage Fund is guided by a committee of individuals interested in protecting Utah's natural environment. We aim to be a source of dialogue and resources for the preservation of our state's natural resources. We work collaboratively and think strategically about how Utahns can sustain the natural beauty and ensure quality of life for its citizens. 

Be Part of the Impact!

You can get involved by attending one of our events, joining our committee, or donating to the Utah Natural Heritage Fund.

  • It's easy. You receive immediate tax deductions for your contributions. We accept gifts of stock, real estate, and other complex assets.
  • It's flexible. You can be certain that your gifts will support Utah's natural heritage in perpetuity, even as our state's most pressing environmental challenges change.
  • It's efficient. Your contributions are pooled with others, creating greater collective giving power.
  • It's impactful. We provide assistance identifying high-impact not-for-profits and monitoring how grants are used, ensuring that your support has the greatest community impact possible.

Historically, Chautauqua was an adult education movement that rose to popularity across the United States, particularly in rural areas, during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 2011 we held a Chautaqua to foster new understandings and deeper collaborations among environmental and conservation organizations, foundations, corporations, and government agencies. Download the report here.
