Park City Foundation to grant $100K to local nonprofits

The Park City Foundation (PCF) will grant $100,000 for the third straight year to local nonprofits as part of its annual competitive grant program. The Community Fund program supports Summit County nonprofit organizations in all areas health and human resources, education, conservation and environment, arts and culture, children and families, animals, sports and recreation and more.

PCF raises money for its grant program via donations from full- and part-time residents and through its Community Pass program. The Community Pass is Summit County’s only ski and golf pass. For an $8,000 donation to the community fund, pass-holders receive 35 days of fully transferable skiing at Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons Resort and 10 foursomes of golf at eight private and public courses: Glenwild Golf Club & Spa, Jeremy Golf and Country Club, Park City Golf Club, Park Meadows Country Club, Promontory, Red Ledges Club, Talisker Golf at Tuhaye and Victory Ranch Golf Club. The ski resorts and golf clubs donate their services to benefit the nonprofit community.

"We’ve made our grant program nonprofit-centered. The process is streamlined so nonprofits can focus on their programs, not grant-writing," explains PCF Executive Director Trisha Worthington.

The first step of the application process is a brief proposal of 300 to 400 words. The grants committee ranks all proposals and invites selected nonprofits to fill out a full application.

Community Foundation Insights recently released a report entitled "Benchmarking Beyond Asset Size: New Top 100 Lists." Traditionally, community foundations compare and define themselves by assets under management, but more and more they are focusing on grantmaking and community initiatives. The new report explored emerging criteria: PCF was ranked eighth under "Most Active Grantmakers" and 80th under "Most Gifts per Capita" an impressive accomplishment for the first community foundation in Utah and an organization only three years old.
