GIVE is a one-of-a-kind event—where nonprofits, donors, and business leaders come together to have this conversation. The goal is simple; GIVE seeks to improve the impact of giving—to increase the benefit of every dollar donated.

The relationship between nonprofits and donors is changing. Expectations, methods, measurement and even terminology have evolved. While one organization may measure impact at an individual level, others seek impact at a population level; some donors seek only to give, while others expect a “return” and the eventual sustainability of the charities they give to. New partnerships are emerging, and our awareness, collaboration and cooperation must keep pace.

To be effective today, nonprofits need financial and volunteer support, but they also need skillsets that enable them to define a need, a vision and a pathway to addressing that need.

To remain competitive and relevant, businesses need a social footprint—a stated meaning that puts their brand in context.

To be successful partners, both need to communicate more effectively. Nonprofits need to be accountable to their donors, and donors need to state, more clearly, their expectations.

GIVE is an innovation of NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young. “Teams that win always have players that are focused on something greater than themselves,” Steve explains. “When you bring together thought leaders from the nonprofit and business sectors, put them in the same room, and allow for open dialogue about how they can help each other succeed, great things happen!”

Steve will be joined this year by the best and brightest innovators in Utah, including great corporate citizens like HGGC Equity, Kirton McConkie, and nonprofit leaders including U Serve Utah, United Way of Salt Lake, Sorensen Impact Center, Community Foundation of Utah and more. Keynote speakers include Bill Crim, Ann Romney, Steve Young, and breakout sessions to be announced over the coming weeks. GIVE also includes three partner pitch sessions in a format that encourages collaboration as well as a special GIVE Awards Luncheon.

There are examples all around us of more effective impact and accountability. GIVE is a space wherein thought leaders can share successes and challenges, learn from one another, receive help, and take their vision to a new level.
