Elevating the impact of Utah’s social sector

FORA is committed to making Utah #1 in giving by improving the coordination and quality of Utah's social sector.

FORA represents a vibrant and growing coalition of stakeholders who are committed to elevating Utah's philanthropic sector. The core mission of FORA is to elevate the impact of the state's social sector through a shared commitment to the four key impact principles.

Elevating Utah's impact starts with a pledge and a commitment to focus on four impact principles.


Focusing on and accounting for 

outcomes (not just activities or outputs).


Collecting, learning from, and relying on data, 

evidence, and best practices to design and improve 

funding decisions and service provisions.


Prioritizing coordination and 

collaboration to avoid duplication 

and fragmentation.


 Integrating the people we serve and 

their voice into the process to keep

services relevant, valued, efficient, 

and high-quality.

The Utah Giving Alliance was formed from the positive response for the Giving State Report, the first ever statewide data-driven report published on Utah's extraordinary philanthropy. The report showcases Utah's position as #1 in the nation for giving and its unique position to lead in excellence and impact.
