Love UT Give UT is a 24 hour online event that encourages everyone to be a philanthropist and contribute to Utah’s nonprofits through a single online giving platform.

Love UT Give UT 2017 promises to be even bigger and will take place on March 30, 2017.
What is the goal?
Love UT Give UT’s vision is that every person contributes to the organization of their choice. We have four simple goals:
Grow philanthropy - Create a fun and engaging way for all Utahns to learn about critical issues impacting our state and inspire them to be a philanthropist.
Grow revenue - Bring new donors to the organizations that make our state and its future strong.
Grow capacity - Build a permanent online giving platform so that all charities – no matter where they are, who they serve, or how big their budget – can access online giving, now and for years to come.
Grow community - Love UT Give UT is a day for Utahns of all backgrounds and beliefs to come together to raise as much money for nonprofit organizations and schools as possible.
How does it work?
On March 30, 2017, the Community Foundation of Utah will host Love UT Give UT, a 24-hour giving event encouraging charitable donations through an online giving platform, hosted by Razoo.
Razoo will provide toolkits, training sessions, outreach support, mass media and social media coverage to make it easy for all nonprofits to participate. Each participating organization will have an individualized web page to promote their cause. This web page can also be used for year-round online fundraising.
Individuals will be able to donate money to the nonprofit organizations of their choice on March 30, 2017. All donations are tax deductible and irrevocable. (Donations will not be refunded). Donors will receive a receipt for their gift. The nonprofit will receive contact information for each donor, unless the donor elects to remain anonymous.
The Razoo Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization which permits donors to advise a re-granting of their donations to other IRS recognized qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations, will accept the gifts and will then re-grant the monies to the nonprofits selected by the donors.
Leaderboards will add excitement to the build-up of Love UT Give UT and to the day of the event. Stay tuned for additional details.
