Assistance League of Salt Lake City is a recognized resource in our community responding to emerging needs through volunteer efforts and collaborative partnerships. We are an all volunteer organization whose 250 members donate nearly 32,000 hours each year meeting the needs of infants to seniors through our ongoing philanthropic programs.
We began serving the Salt Lake community as a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization and a guild of National Assistance League in 1974. In 1977 we became the 61st chapter of National Assistance League. Currently, we are one of 120 chapters of this vibrant organization.
We fund and staff philanthropic programs our members have identified through careful needs assessment. Our programs are regularly evaluated and fine-tuned to meet changing needs giving the highest benefit to our clients and greatest results for our donors.
Assistance League Thrift Shop generates 60 to 70 percent of our funding. The remaining revenue comes from generous individuals, foundations and corporations who support our work. Assistance League of has no paid staff. Our members manage all facets of the organization. More than $.85 of every donated dollar goes to fund our programs, making our return to the community among the highest of all nonprofits.
"One of the things that I believe is special about your organization is that you are the only organization I know of that operates without any paid staff, relying solely on your dedicated and committed membership to achieve your goals."
