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.

2. Women’s Giving Fund

The Women’s Giving Fund makes an annual high-impact grant to an organization that serves Summit County women and children. It is an endowment, founded by over 1,000 members who each gave a $1,000 gift to become lifetime members. The 2015 Women’s Giving Fund Grant was made to PC Tots, a new affordable childcare program, the 2016 grant was made to Summit County Children’s Justice Center, the 2017 grant went to Peace House to support transitional housing for victims of domestic violence, and the 2018 grant went to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah to expand their mentoring programs.

3. Solomon Fund

The Solomon Fund will award grants to local organizations who are intentionally working to increase low-income Latino participation in their programs. Our goal is to see children’s participation better reflect the diverse makeup of our town. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to be active and engaged through sports and recreation.

Application opens Friday, February 8, 2019 and deadline to apply is Wednesday, March 27, 2019.
