Girls’ Giving Fund

Launched in 2017 by 12-year-old Paige Rock and her 10 founding members, Girls’ Giving Fund is an opportunity to promote nonprofit support among school-aged girls of greater Park City. The girls made their first grant to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah in 2017, and aim to make their second grant in 2018. This community of 100 girls are each raising or earning $100 to donate to the fund.

Girls’ Giving Fund provides the opportunity for young girls to learn to serve the community and experience the joy of giving back. When we work together, our impact can be greater.

“We are the future of Park City.” -Paige Rock, Founder, Age 12

Girls’ Giving Fund members each donate $100 to support a fund (not an endowment) that aims to make a grant of $5,000 each year to a nonprofit serving children in Park City.
