On October 13-14, 2015, CEOs, community leaders, Corporate Giving Officers, executive directors, granting foundations, students, social entrepreneurs, and change-makers from across the state will come together to celebrate and explore paths to greater social impact. Proceeds from the event will be used to give nonprofit leaders access to some of the world’s best leadership and management training through the Forever Young Institute. Forever Young has long advocated training for nonprofit leaders.

The event will be held at the David Eccles School of Business on the University of Utah Campus. GIVE Salt Lake will feature two days of inspiring stories, presentations, workshops, and hands-on training. The event will include insights into best practices, new technologies, and a nonprofit pitch competition. 

Opportunities to get involved include:

GIVE Salt Lake Two-day Workshop


In the two-day workshop speakers will guide interactive conversations about strategic giving, measuring impact, improving effectiveness, employee engagement, skills-based volunteerism, and more.

According to Forever Young Foundation founder, Steve Young, there is a reason the event is partnering with the Eccles School of Business. “The uniqueness of this event is found in the direct collaboration between the business and nonprofit sectors. In today’s competitive environment, businesses need to demonstrate their commitment to social responsibility, but do so in a manner that protects the business. This changes the game for charities who now must understand—more than ever before—the distinctive business need for results. This event will help charities rise to meet this opportunity in three ways; to learn together, to celebrate and accelerate the work of effective nonprofits, and to promote innovation and understanding through a businesscharity collaboration.”

GIVE '15 Nonprofit Pitch Competition


The GIVE '15 Nonprofit Pitch Competition provides the opportunity for 24 nonprofit organizations to compete for prizes, awards and volunteer support.

According to President & Executive Director, Sterling Tanner, "It became apparent after our first training event some seven years ago, charities are hungry for guidance, information and best practices. Once empowered with those tools, everyone involved in the process, from donors, to charities, to program recipients, sees greater results." It is this vision that led to the creation of GIVE Salt Lake.
