Founded in 2005, the Utah Guard Charitable Trust is the leading non-profit organization focusing on issues important to Utah military families.


Members of the Utah National Guard make significant sacrifices and contributions to the military efforts of the United States, and the emergency readiness within of the State of Utah.

While members of the Active Duty military are eligible for programs that provide support for the military family, members of the National Guard are not eligible for the same programs.

The Utah Guard Charitable Trust fills this gap and helps provide resources necessary so our brave Soldiers and Airmen can stay focused on their mission.

Whether during times of deployment(s) or adjusting back to civilian life, the families we provide assistance to face a unique set of challenges. The Utah Guard Charitable Trust steps up to meet these challenges.
