Welcome Friends in Service


Dear Friends in Service,

It is inspiring to hear stories from all around the state of Utahns’ commitment and passion for serving their friends, families, neighbors, and communities. This spirit of service has earned Utah the #1 ranking in the nation for volunteerism and civic engagement for nine consecutive years! Volunteerism helps meet critical needs in Utah and provides significant economic and social value for our citizens and communities. Each year Utah volunteers dedicate millions of hours of service. Last year alone that service was estimated to be worth $3.5 billion.

The poet, Henry Longfellow said: “No man or woman is so poor as to have nothing worth giving.” This is the vitality of volunteering; it is something that anyone can do – no matter where they live, their age, income, religious or cultural affiliation. Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity that is open to all of us and there is a vast range of possibilities for volunteerism in Utah. I invite you to join with us as we focus on making a difference.

Yours in Service,

Lt. Governor Spencer Cox
