Honor Nonprofit Leaders in Utah

And these people are the people you can/should/will want to nominate for a UNA 2020 Nonprofit Leader in recognition of the joy, inspiration, healing, and help they bring to our communities. The tradition, started in 2017, honors the people behind the wonderful work nonprofits accomplish.

Thank you for your nominations. The nomination period has closed. Stay tuned to find out this year's Outstanding Nonprofit Leader and Emerging Nonprofit Leader at the 2020 UNA Annual Conference: WE ARE...
