The mission of Utah Nonprofits Association is to unify, strengthen and elevate Utah's nonprofits. Utah Nonprofits Association (UNA) provides its members and partners the opportunity to engage in meaningful and dynamic relationships. UNA will:

·       Strengthen: Be the portal of nonprofit expertise, education, information and benefits

·       Elevate: Be the voice and promote the essential value of the nonprofit community


The Utah Nonprofits Association (UNA) is the umbrella membership association of nonprofit organizations in Utah. Incorporated in 1990, UNA was created by, and for, people who strive for a stronger, more professional nonprofit community in Utah. Our current membership includes over 760 nonprofit organizations and community members. 


UNA provides our interns with a friendly and fun working environment, where learning is supported by experienced staff. Past interns tell us they enjoyed their experience because they were learning and doing something new every day. UNA interns work as a member of a team with the staff, committees, volunteers and members.

They will also gain experience with networking, events planning and communications (messaging and promotions). Interns also expand their technical skills and experience with computer software and data base management.
