Bennion Boosters are our wonderful donors who are the backbone of our organization because:
Their support helps provide the stable funding needed to make a positive change in our community, elevate the public discourse around important issues, and engage more U students in community service. Their support allows us to budget for the long-term, operate at a high level and not fall victim to shifting institutional priorities or grant cycles. We need to retain our quality staff, a steady stream of supplies, and financial assistance for our students who give so much to their community.
It's a way for people of ordinary means to give extraordinary gifts. By making a monthly sustaining gift to the Bennion Center you can make a larger impact that you might be able to make in a single annual gift.
Grassroots giving means grassroots engagement. We've always believed, like John Dewey, that democracy must be born anew in each generation, we cannot take it for granted. Our communities can only truly be transformed through the power of all of us working together. We believe in the power of student engagement, volunteers, and donors giving small amounts, coming together to work for positive community change.
