Utah: The Giving State

PROVO, Utah – Jan 09, 2018 – With a new year and new goals for doing good, some people may seek opportunities to make a greater impact in the world. According to Cicero Social Impact’s report, The Giving State, Utah gives more time and money than any other state in the United States. What the report also found, however, is that more can be done to make volunteering and donations deeply impactful.

“Utahns’ generosity and commitment to community are two of the best things about our state,” says Jacob Allen, managing director of Cicero Social Impact and a BYU alum. “This report attempts to pair these unique characteristics by asking two questions: What is the state of giving in Utah? And how can we make it even better?”

The Giving State, the first ever statewide report on philanthropy, focuses on five main aspects that could improve the way Utahns give: a fragmented landscape, approaches to funding, effective communication, understanding the evidence, and nailing the fundamentals. Through the data collected from over 750 surveys administered to nonprofit leaders, philanthropists, and community members, Cicero Social Impact’s report is the foundational data to help Utah not only be the most giving state but the most impactful state in the country.
