lugu-isolatedBy Mike Varanakis, Youth Services Public Information Officer

On March 26th you have the chance to support youth – and hundreds of others – by going on line to and being a part of 24 hours of giving.

Thursday, March 26, 2015, Love Utah Give Utah will raise money for nonprofits and schools through a single online donation platform, providing a simple way to connect donors to charitable causes.

ShelterKids-Color-LogoShelterKids, Inc. is one of those organizations making a difference every day assisting children and youth through Salt Lake County Division of Youth Services (a public private partnership) who are victims of abuse, neglect, or foster care disruption by helping to raise funds and resources to provide emergency residential care, counseling, prevention services, and youth community activities for programs like Afterschool.

This is a 24-hour online fundraising effort, hosted by the Community Foundation of Utah with the generous support of sponsors, will offer hundreds of nonprofits the opportunity to raise millions of dollars.

How To Participate – It’s Easy. It’s simple. Point. Click. Donate. Awesome!

How it works: All donations made on are made to the Razoo Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization which permits donors to advise a re-granting of their donations to other IRS recognized qualifying 501(c)(3). The Razoo Foundation will re-grant 94% of its contribution to the qualifying organization as advised by the donor, retaining 4.9% for Razoo Foundation fees and distributing 1.1% to The Community Foundation of Utah to cover a small portion of the event hosting costs.
