Utah Cares

Utah Public Radio partners with the Utah Nonprofits Association and KCPW to produce short radio spots demonstrating the positive impacts of local nonprofit organizations. This exciting effort is designed to help increase the visibility of nonprofits across the state and to inspire people to give generously to area charitable organizations and community groups that are so essential to the health and well-being of our state.

Utah Cares airs in February, June, September and December of each year, with eight nonprofit organizations being featured each round. Organizations that submit a story idea but are not selected for the current cycle are encouraged to reapply.
