SALT LAKE CITY — Leaders from more than 100 Utah nonprofits will convene to discuss strategies for sustainable growth at the fourth annual Wells Fargo Economic Summit for Nonprofits on May 22.
Over the past four years, the vast majority of nonprofits have faced increased demands for services, while less than half have been able to meet those needs, a news release stated. The 2012 State of the Nonprofit Sector Survey by the Nonprofit Finance Fund found that, in Utah alone, 88 percent of Utah nonprofits anticipate increased demand for services in 2012, yet 53 percent expect to be unable to meet demand.
“Nonprofits meet community needs in so many ways,” said Chris Bray, executive director of Utah Nonprofits Association. “This summit will provide specific ways nonprofits can manage the pressures to serve our community.”
According to Bray, Utah nonprofits generate $7.6 billion in annual revenues and employ 51,000 people — almost 5 percent of the state’s workforce.
Featured speakers at the summit include Marc Fest, founder of Message House; Van Evans, director of Generations Humanitarian; and Denise Winslow, community affairs manager for Wells Fargo.
