Segment 2:

Utah nonprofits took a beating from the Great Recession and as a result, the nonprofit sector shrunk over 30 percent. That’s the conclusion of a report by The Community Foundation of Utah. On Thursday, we’ll learn about the state of Utah’s nonprofit community and lessons from the economic downturn for charities and philanthropy.
