SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A survey of 127 Utah nonprofit organizations shows the economic downturn has forced agencies to cut staff and services or revamp programs in order to survive.

The June survey, which was released Friday, was the second conducted by Community Foundation of Utah this year. In both instances, charities said their donations had declined while the demand for services increased. Rural agencies struggled the most.

Agencies say that to weather the times, they have increased collaborations with other entities and created new efficiencies and programming to meet demands. At least four agencies said they merged with others to save money.

But many urban agencies also said they feel optimistic about the future.
