Planned Giving

When you make a legacy gift to the Rural Utah Project through your will, trust, or other life income plan, you build our capacity in rural communities for generations.

There are many planned giving techniques that can help you maximize the personal benefits of your charitable giving while allowing you to make an impactful gift that you might not have thought possible. With questions about supporting RUP through planned giving, please contact our Development Director, Kate Steinicke at [email protected].

Please note that the Rural Utah Project cannot give legal or tax advice. Please consult with your financial advisor or attorney to help you choose the right planned gift for you and your family.

Employer Matched Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees to the Rural Utah Project Education Fund, our 501(c)(3) non-profit. Inquire with your company today to find out if your gift could be doubled, or tripled!

CARS Vehicle Donation

Consider offloading an old car, truck, boat, or RV today through our vehicle donation program in support of the Rural Utah Project Education Fund, our 501(c)(3) non-profit. You’ll receive a tax-deductible receipt for your donation, the vehicle will be towed at no cost to you, and most vehicles can be picked up within 24-72 hours.

For more information, FAQ’s, or to start the donation process, please visit this link. Customer service support for the process is available 7 days a week at (855) 500-RIDE or (855) 500-7433.

CARS is our 501(c)(3) partner in administering this program and also benefits from this donation.

Direct Vehicle Donation

If you are interested in donating a working vehicle directly for RUP’s organizers to use, we put a lot of miles on our vehicles driving streets with no names, and would be thrilled to discuss this option with you. Please contact our Development Director, Kate Steinicke at [email protected].

Our Non-Profit Designation

Monetary contributions made to the Rural Utah Project are made to our 501(c)(4) non-profit! Our status as a 501(c)(4) gives us the flexibility to wage long-term political campaigns across rural Utah, and to endorse and support candidates for local office.

If you are interested in making a contribution to our 501(c)(3), the Rural Utah Project Education Fund, you can make a donation here, or contact our Development Director Kate Steinicke at [email protected] to request more information.

Community Partnership

If you are a business or organization who would like to support the Rural Utah Project through an event, branded item, or other creative partnership, we would love to hear from you! Please email our Development Director, Kate Steinicke, at [email protected].
