Pennies by the Inch is currently in its historic 95th year!

Pennies by the Inch celebrates a long tradition of dedicated volunteers and generous members of the community contributing time and money to benefit the children and families that benefit from Primary Children’s Hospital. 

This fundraising campaign began in the early 1900s as the “Penny Parade” and lives on today as Pennies by the Inch, remaining one of the oldest door-to-door fundraising campaigns in the United States. Pennies by the Inch continues to spread the message that every penny counts, and shares the opportunity for anyone to make a difference for those in our community.  

Many of our incredible volunteers started participating in Pennies by the Inch by going door-to-door as young children and have continued the tradition of volunteering for for many years. Some of our most distinguished volunteers have participated for over 25 years! This year alone, more than one hundred dedicated volunteers are currently reaching out to those living in Utah, Nevada, Idaho, and Wyoming to contribute to this meaningful campaign.
