Change a life in salt Lake CitY today by supporting
a neighbor's journey out of homelessness.
As Salt Lake City natives living and working downtown, we couldn't help but notice the countless people asking for money and experiencing homelessness in the area, and the toll it was taking. So we decided to do something about it. Inspired by Kickstarter, GoFundMe, and other similar platforms that utilize technology to raise money online for a specific person, product, or cause, we created SLC Giving as a response we could implement in that spirit, on a local level. Through secure online donations to our program-referred* candidates, we connect this vulnerable population, one by one, with the resources and support they most need.
Our process is simple:
Identify CandidateS & Needs
We meet with each program-referred* homeless candidate one-on-one to get to know them better and identify the need(s) for which we will raise funds.
Share their campaign
Then we create their fundraising campaign and fund it, thanks to the generous monthly donations of our members. Donated funds are always used to fulfill needs, never given as cash.
Support & Sustain
Once their campaign is complete and their need fulfilled, candidates are connected with our support network and other available resources to sustain them on the journey forward.
