About Us | Promise Partnership Utah

About Us


To create long-term change by harnessing the power of nonprofits, government, corporations, and thousands of individuals to work together and solve the most difficult problems we face as a community.


We envision an inclusive community where all people achieve their human potential through education, financial stability, and healthy lives.


Promise Partnership Utah supports youth in their educational journey from cradle to career to ensure they can explore, dream, and take steps to realize their potential. Our approach involves being rooted in data and deeply collaborating with public and private sector partners to transform the education environment, so it produces more equitable outcomes and disparity gaps are eliminated. We operate on the deeply held belief that by working collectively we can have a greater impact for our youth than we could have alone.

Promise Partnership Utah, United Way of Salt Lake, and 211 Utah (Salt Lake City team) are part of the Utah’s Promise organization. Together, we are committed to 100% of kids and families thriving.

The Promise Partnership Regional Council

They act as the Promise Partnership's governing board, bringing in their expertise to guide how we create systems change in our community. Together, we are pursuing lasting social change on some of our community’s toughest challenges: poverty, poor health, and inequitable educational achievement.
