Women’s Giving Fund

1,900 members making high-impact grants to help local women+ and children.

The exponential power of women+ and girls.

When more than 1,900 women and girls of Park City join together, they’re an unstoppable force—and the Women’s Giving Fund makes it possible. With a mission of supporting women+ and children in need, Women’s Giving Fund awards high-impact grants to local organizations that are making a difference. But that’s just the beginning. With social events throughout the year, Women’s Giving Fund is more than a circle of philanthropists. It’s an entire community of women+ helping women+.

Help us get to 2,022 members in 2022!

In 2022, Women’s Giving Fund is expanding its membership in order to increase positive impacts for local women and children. The goal is to have 2,022 members by year-end. As Park City and Summit County have grown, the needs of women and children are also growing and becoming more and more complex. You can make a tangible difference right here in your own community by becoming a member today. The more members we have, the bigger grants we can make to ensure that local women and children can thrive.

A space for all women+

At Park City Community Foundation, we use women+ to welcome and include all self-identifying women, including cis and transgender women, as well as non-binary and gender-fluid individuals. While our initiative centers women’s voices and is catered to women+, we welcome the support of all allies who share our values.

From $84/month to a $2.2 million endowment.

The idea behind the Women’s Giving Fund is simple. Each member donates at least $1,000, which can be split into monthly payments of just $84, and together their donations grow. Since 2014, more than 1,900 people have contributed to the fund, which has skyrocketed to over $2.2 million. The fund is endowed by Park City Community Foundation, and grants to local nonprofits are made from its earnings in perpetuity—so Park City women can feel the love of their community for generations to come.
