Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah is a wonderful organization, and we are so proud of our partnership with them! Its work of engaging children in meaningful mentorships aligns perfectly with United Way of Salt Lake’s promise to Change the Odds. This is particularly true considering that, according to its website, in 2014, 92 percent of the children Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah served were from low-to-moderate income families.

In addition to facilitating these wonderful mentorships, Big Brothers Big Sisters gives back to the community in another meaningful way. Did you know that Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah also hosts a charitable giving campaign among its employees to raise funds in support of Collective Impact and the work of UWSL?

This year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah knocked its campaign right out of the park, increasing its employee charitable giving by over 181 percent compared to last year’s campaign! Wow!

We are so proud and grateful for the dedicated support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah! Because of this generous support, thousands of kids across the communities where we live and work will have access to necessary social services such as healthcare and high-quality education, while also having their basic needs met.

If your company is not yet engaged in the work of United Way of Salt Lake, we invite you to jump in! Your organization can also host an employee giving campaign, which can make a lasting impact in the life of many children and their families. Together, we can Change the Odds!

Thank you, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah, for being a shining example of what it means to LIVE UNITED!
