Park City Community Foundation awards grants to local nonprofits through the following primary programs.
1. Community Fund
The Community Fund supports nonprofit organizations that serve the visitors, workforce and citizens of greater Park City and Summit County in Utah. We grant to organizations that meet our community’s most pressing needs and contribute to a thriving and vibrant community. We strive to support the most effective programs and well-governed organizations, with an eye toward significant community benefits and outcomes.
