Donate to Spy Hop
Spy Hop is moving in July — and we need your help!
For the past eight years, Spy Hop has called Salt Lake’s Rio Grande neighborhood home. Unfortunately, the growth in illegal activity, substance abuse and mental health challenges facing the Rio Grande neighborhood has compromised the safety of our students and staff, and Spy Hop parents have expressed concern for the safety of their children — as such, we must move.
The move will cost roughly $25,000, and we are asking our friends and supporters in the community to help offset this unexpected expense by contributing to the relocation effort. Please consider helping to offset these costs by supporting us during the transition.
Let your voice be heard by supporting Spy Hop
We all love creative, innovative, passionate and inspiring people. We seek them out. We connect with them. We value their curiosity, their ideas and their work. We build our lives and communities with them.
For 16 years, Spy Hop has mentored the next generation of creative, innovative, passionate and inspiring youth. We believe in creativity, diversity, empowerment, transformation and community – and we work each day to instill these qualities in our students. We are proud of our students, their work, and the community that supports both.
During the 2014/15 programming year, Spy Hop served 1872 youth from throughout the Wasatch Front and Utah, providing more than 3,500 hours of class. Each and every hour of programming helps bridge the digital divide and promote positive relationships, civic awareness and engagement, 21st century life skills, creativity and self-awareness.
Each and every hour of programming depends on the support of generous individuals in the community.
There are two ways to support Spy Hop students:
Recurring donation – Join the Crew!
The Spy Hop Crew is a group of generous supporters who make an ongoing impact on youth in our community by providing year round support to Spy Hop students and their work. Setting up recurring giving takes just a couple of minutes and allows us to plan ahead and use your gift strategically, where it is needed most.
A one-time gift of support will help us inspire young media makers, develop academic skills, and boost the confidence of nearly 2,000 students each year. Whether it’s $10 or $10,000, every dollar helps Utah’s young people find their voice, tell their stories and be empowered to affect positive change in their lives, communities and the world.
