Our Foundations

The Alta Club foundations help to ensure the preservation of Utah's heritage. The Arts Foundation implements exhibits, collections, and events to educate and entertain the Utah fine arts enthusiast. The Building Foundation facilitates the preservation of historic downtown Salt Lake City. Tax deductible donations to either foundation are always welcomed.

  • Alta Club Building Foundation
    • In 2000, The Alta Club formed the Alta Club Building Foundation to be a 501(c)3 organization to solicit charitable contributions for the repair and maintenance of the Alta Club Building. The Building located at 100 South State Street in Salt Lake City is on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

      Built in 1897, the Building is always in need of upkeep and refurbishment and it is the responsibility of the Foundation to raise funds for these purposes. Permitted purposes described by the IRS conditions of non-profit status include anything pertaining to the exterior of the building and the critical systems within or near the Building tied to the structural integrity of the building. These permitted purposes include the roof, electrical, HVAC, and plumbing systems. The cost of replacing and repairing interior items such as painting, carpets and furniture must come from Club operations.

      The Foundation continues to raise funds in the furtherance of its responsibilities to the exterior of the Building.
  • Alta Club Arts Foundation
    • The Alta Club Arts Foundation, a Utah non-profit corporation, is a publicly supported organization whose specific pursuit is to raise funds and endowments, to acquire, preserve and display to the general public various works of art, with an emphasis on the preservation and display of artwork specifically related to the history, culture, geography and other aspects of life in the state of Utah and the West.

      The Alta Club Arts Foundation builds, improves and maintains an art, antiques, and literature collection of high quality for the enjoyment and edification of its members, their guests and the Salt Lake area community. The collection contains all forms of art, including, but not limited to, painting, sculpture, antiques and literature.

      The Arts Foundation also serves as a source for artwork
      and historic books and papers to museums, libraries, and
       educational organizations interested in the display and
      study of Utah artwork. The interpretation of art and
       literature is effected through public lectures and
      presentations and the Foundation’s lending program.
      The Foundation may loan artwork on a temporary basis
      to museums or other collecting or exhibiting institutions, public schools and libraries. In addition, the foundation encourages scholars, students and the general public to access the Foundation’s collections to study the history and cultural history of Utah and the region.

      The Alta Club Arts Foundation was established in 2004 and holds an IRS 501(c)3 status. All of the activities are carried out by the Alta Club Arts Foundation Officers and Trustees.
