Community Initiatives

Turn your ideas into action.

When everyone in our community pulls together, Park City has the power to do great things. By sharing our collective ideas and expertise as well as our financial resources, we’re making Park City an even better place to live—for now and forever.

Initiatives that engage our community.

Together with a broad range of stakeholders—from philanthropists and activists to politicians and businesspeople—Park City Community Foundation identifies local needs and develops creative solutions. The result? Initiatives the whole community can get behind.

Current Initiatives:

  • Social Equity — In partnership with Park City Municipal Corporation, Park City Community Foundation is convening the community to build greater social equity and a more complete community. Park City Community Foundation will mobilize its deep convening experience to bring the community together in a coalition that will perform a social equity self-diagnosis, identify existing social equity resources and gaps, prioritize the most significant and addressable social equity challenges, develop a multiyear strategic plan.
  • Summit County Mental Wellness Alliance — Park City Community Foundation sparked the creation of the Summit County Mental Wellness Alliance, to plan and implement county-wide, systemic, sustainable solutions that improve mental wellness in our community. Dozens of organizations and individuals have joined in to help.
  • Solomon Fund: Integration through Recreation — This initiative promotes a more inclusive, integrated, and complete community by improving access to sports and recreational activities for Latino children. Park City Community Foundation is deploying creative strategies to overcome barriers and facilitate access, and ultimately increase participation in mainstream, winter, and team sports as well as other recreational opportunities.
  • Early Childhood — The Summit County Early Childhood Alliance is working to ensure that all children in Summit County have sufficient opportunities in the years up to age three to thrive, learn, and grow into participating, contributing members of our community.
  • Promise Park City — A seamless system of support that ensures the children and families of Park City have the opportunity to achieve their potential. This deep collaboration among nonprofit service providers, Park City School District, and other community stakeholders is led by United Way of Salt Lake and supported by the Community Foundation.
