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 their second to EATS Park City in 2018. They aim to provide a grant to our community each fall.

This community of girls are each raising or earning $100 to donate to the fund annually.

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 each donate $100 to support a fund (not an endowment) that aims to make a grant each year to a nonprofit serving children in Park City.
