Nonprofits do a lot of good in our communities, and in order for these organizations to maximize their reach and impact, they need the support of many people, including the government (and you!). Take a quick look at our Nonprofit Impact Fact Sheet and note that there are almost 10,000 nonprofit groups in Utah alone! The laws made by the state of Utah and by the United States government can have a serious impact on these organizations. They can implement regulations that burden nonprofits, or they can enable nonprofits to do even more good in the community. By becoming involved in public policy, nonprofit groups can have a positive influence and can enable the thousands of nonprofits to continue making an impact on their community.
