Girls’ Giving Fund


Launched June 6, 2017, by founder, 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 aim to make a grant to a local nonprofit by Live PC Give PC 2017. This community of 100 girls will each raise or earn $100 to donate to the fund. Girls’ Giving Fund is in its pilot year.

Mission
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

Goal
Girls’ Giving Fund members will all donate $100, to create a fund (not an endowment) to grant to a nonprofit in Park City that serves children in Park City. The goal is to grant $5,000 each year to nonprofits that support children in Park City.
