Causes We Support
Utah Food Bank
Utah Food Bank has a mission to fight hunger statewide, and they have been tirelessly working with community partners and volunteers to fulfill this mission for over 117 years. As Utah’s only member of Feeding America, and one of a handful of food banks that distributes food free-of-charge, it is a leading charity in helping the most vulnerable populations of our state. A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, they operate efficiently with cash donations, or with gifts of food and time. Over the years, the Albion team has volunteered at the food bank, helping sort their massive amount of food donations.
Salt Lake Acting Company
A 501(c)(3), SLAC is one of the chief performing arts organizations in Utah. SLAC has earned a loyal following by providing audiences of Salt Lake and the Intermountain West with the opportunity to experience plays that would otherwise not be produced in this area. SLAC is a core member of the National New Play Network, and is committed to commissioning, developing, and producing new plays. Through its arts education programs, SLAC strives to be a resource for the arts for Utah students from kindergarten to university.

Utah Open Lands

The association works with land owners who want to preserve their land for conservation purposes, using a tax-advantaged conservation easement. They have successfully conserved over 60,000 acres of Utah open land since starting in 1990.
Utah Avalanche Center
The Utah Avalanche Center is the state’s primary resource for avalanche forecasting and community education, serving all variety of winter sport participants along the Wasatch Front, and from Logan to Moab. The center cooperates with local ski resorts, Department of Transportation, search and rescue, and law enforcement to provide training and to share information about ongoing conditions. Their ‘Know Before You Go’ educational campaign provides a simplified message that reaches beyond the less-experienced audiences, keeping all of us on top.
Albion was founded in the basement of the Alta Lodge and our namesake is the Albion Basin. Most members of our team enjoy the winter sports as way of life and we proudly support the life-saving mission of this local institution.
