UPAN is 100% volunteer. None of our staff or volunteers are provided compensation of any kind. Our entire operation is dependent upon the kind donations from community supporters that see value in our cause of making the incarceration journey of Utah prisoners and their families easier and more fair. Make a tax deductible charitable donation to UPAN and the money will go towards event programming, inmate mail and newsletter printing costs, as well as operational costs. More information about our 501(c)3 nonprofit status is below. Thank you for supporting our cause.
We accept donations of any amount ($1.00 minimum) via credit card, debit card, or PayPal. The donate button will take you from our site to the PayPal donation portal. Upon successful completion of your transaction, you will be returned to our website. On the donation form there is a checkbox you may select to become a sustainer and make recurring monthly donations from your PayPal account. Feel free to “Add a Note” if you would like your donation to go to a particular part of our cause. If you choose to leave your mailing address and contact information we will send you a personalized “thank you” message. Upon completing your transaction you will receive an automatically generated receipt sent to your email address that can be used as documentation of your tax deductible charitable donation.
