Building Our Home for Lifetime Humanitarians-

Past, Present, and Future

Youthlinc has grown steadily for 20 years, widening and deepening our impact in the community. And there is so much more to do.
We’ve relied on donated office space till just a few years ago. With all our programs, participants, and staff, we have reached a place at our 20th anniversary where we need a home of our own – a place that belongs to the thousands of Utah families and young people we’ve impacted, and a place dedicated to the thousands of lives we will touch in the future.
We are asking our Youthlinc family – all our program donors, Service Year mentors, alum parents and students who have long recognized Youthlinc’s role in creating lifetime humanitarians – and those who are now recognizing our impact in this state – to dig deep and partner with us in this effort.

Have you thought about the benefits of gifting investments to Youthlinc? Donating appreciated investments is an easy way to maximize your donation. By donating investments you have held for more than one year, you may be able to give more than if you sold the investment to make a cash donation (potentially 20%+ due to tax savings).  If you are 70 ½ or older, you can also donate up to $100,000 directly from your IRA without incurring taxes (Qualified Charitable Distribution) and will count towards your required minimum distribution.

One quick phone call can transfer these investments to Youthlinc and help us to achieve our capital campaign goals. Want to learn more? Contact Shannon Moss at

Our home campus (346 E 4500 S) in Murray – where Youthlinc first began – will:

• provide a beautiful, functional space for all of our impactful programming – with plenty room to grow.

• serve as an additional Real Life site with neighboring schools, one of which is the most diverse elementary school in the State. We hope to serve James E. Moss Elementary, Parkside Elementary, Hillcrest Junior High, and Murray High School with afterschool programming.

• Provide some green space and a community center for local residents of all ages in need of life skill enhancing curriculum, a place to mingle, learn, and play together.

• create opportunities for additional partnerships to benefit the community and provide space for community meetings. Our hope is that low cost rentals of our meeting space will cover utilities – helping our Service Year and GCL programming to remain reasonably priced for all participants.
