Summit County, Utah (October 12, 2021) – Live PC Give PC takes place this year on Friday, November 5 and this giving day for Park City and Summit County is a critical fundraiser for local nonprofits. The 24-hour event hosted by Park City Community Foundation aims to bring in 6,500 donors to support over 140 nonprofit fundraisers. People of all ages and backgrounds are expected to participate in this online event which also includes several in-person activities for volunteers and supporters to celebrate.
Since 2011, more than $16 million has been raised for Park City and Summit County nonprofits on Live PC Give PC. This year the Community Foundation is hoping for more contributions and involvement than in past years as many nonprofits have still not been able to do in-person fundraisers because of COVID-19 and many rely on this giving day to operate their programs.
Last year alone, Live PC Give PC raised nearly $3.5 million from thousands of donations, with the largest portion of the donations coming from local Summit County residents supporting their favorite nonprofits, including those focused on arts, education, health care, animal welfare, trails, environmental efforts, cultural and recreational programs, and social services. Many donors were also part-time residents and visitors who care about Park City.
“Our nonprofit community benefits everyone who lives, works, plays, or stays in the area. We’re very excited to everyone come together to ensure that we have services that uplift and strengthen our entire community,” said Brandi Connolly, co-chair of the Live PC Give PC task force and a board member of Park City Community Foundation. “The best way to participate this year is to give what you can with a donation of any size on November 5th. Nonprofits with the most unique donors will receive big cash prizes, and by giving, donors also help nonprofits meet matching grant challenges–your gift can even be doubled.”
Park City Community Foundation has scheduled activities to allow the community to safely celebrate Live PC Give PC, including a Livestream and a community party, “Under the Stars.” COVID-19 safety guidelines continue to be a top priority for in-person celebrations for Live PC Give PC and the Community Foundation is following all current regulations and asking participants to do the same.
