Day on the Hill

Join us on February 22nd for our 10th Annual Nonprofit Day on the Hill!

On Thursday, February 22, nonprofit organizations will gather at the Capitol to educate and advocate for their respective organizations. For the past nine years, the Utah Nonprofits Association has organized this event to educate Utah's policy makers on the breadth and depth of Utah's social sector, to help our members understand the importance of their voice in the policy making process and to provide training on how to make your voice heard!

"Thanks again for your sponsorship of Nonprofit Day on the Hill. It was exciting to see so many wonderful nonprofits represented—Utah truly does have an amazing collection of organizations committed to improving our communities. Thanks for all your efforts in assisting those organizations, including the MS Society, Utah-Southern Idaho Chapter." Todd Oldroyd, Trustee for the Chapter I 2016 attendee
