September Meeting

What is humanism anyway? This is a question that we frequently get asked. Come to our September 12th meeting in Eliot Hall at the First Unitarian Church located at 569 South 1300 East in Salt Lake City and get some insights.

Humanists of Utah is a nonprofit organization supported in large part by dues paying members. Our other major source of funds comes from generous gifts, mostly from the same dues payers who give a little more. In February 2003, chapter member Marion Craig died and left HoU a bequest of $20,000. We invested this money in an endowment fund. The interest is still helping to pay for banquets, special events, etc. When you create your personal will please consider leaving a gift to Humanists of Utah.
