Whether it’s catching a baseball game, watching the fireworks, riding their favorite Lagoon ride or diving headfirst into swimming, you can bet our kids have plenty to keep them busy in the months ahead.

At Work...

  • 2%, 10%, 25%: of a daily profit for kids
  • Jeans Friday: donate to wear jeans
  • Corporate Match: employee donations
  • Gift Card Trees: in break room or storefront
  • Auction: new or used items

At Play...
Gather family, friends, neighbors & give!

  • Yard Sale! Car Wash! Bake Sale!

That’s why we are dubbing this month Christmas in July, and we need your help!

We are calling on you to help us keep our programs running smoothly and stock our summer supplies. And the possibilities are tailored to YOU:

In short, we are a catalyst for philanthropy that is visionary, sustainable, inclusive and engaged. Our mission is to harness Utah’s entrepreneurial spirit in service to the common good.
