Daniels FundToday, we are thrilled to announce the President’s Award for Excellence: Daniels Fund.

This award recognizes individuals or organizations that champion United Way of Salt Lake’s efforts to create lasting change in our community through collaboration, leadership, commitment, resources and time spent working to solve community problems. The award demonstrates outstanding commitment to the mission of United Way Salt Lake.

United Way of Salt Lake is proud to partner with some of the most profound and inspiring institutions in the country, and Daniels Fund is no exception. On November 19, 2014 at its third annual Funders Summit, United Way of Salt Lake was privileged to highlight a significant strategic partnership with Daniels Fund. Committed to fulfilling Bill Daniels’ vision to make life better for the people of Utah, the Denver-based foundation aligned a $5 million investment to strengthen United Way of Salt Lake’s Promise Partners and Community Schools—helping to ensure every child succeeds, every step of the way, from cradle to career. By aligning goals of both organizations to ensure the best possible impact when addressing the needs of our community, this investment in Utah’s future will make an impact on at-risk students, and their families, for years to come.
