Sydney Reed wins annual service award as Community Foundation announces $425,000 in grants

Park City Community Foundation was busy Tuesday giving out $425,000 in funding grants to 53 nonprofits during a celebration in Deer Valley and recognizing Sydney Reed with the annual Trisha J. Worthington Community Service Award.

Nonprofit representatives from the grantee organizations, along with donors to the Community Fund, celebrated together at the event sponsored by Deer Valley Resort at Snow Park Lodge. Over 180 people were in attendance. 

Now in its 16th year, Park City Community Foundation has granted over $2.65 million to nonprofits from its Community Fund. These annual grants go out to Park City and Summit County nonprofits working on a wide array of issues.

“Local nonprofits are critical in helping our community to be resilient and strong,” said Joel Zarrow, president and CEO of Park City Community Foundation. “This year, we have provided Community Fund grants ranging from $2,500 to $17,000 to nonprofits addressing critical community needs. The grants provide mental health support, youth arts and sports programs, high quality affordable childcare, open space, affordable housing, legal assistance, and much more. Donations to our Community Fund bolster our ability to lead on critical issues and we appreciate the support.”

Donors to Park City Community Foundation make the Community Fund possible, foundation officials said.. They include people who make gifts of any size, contributors to the Community Foundation on the annual day of giving, Live PC Give PC, and Community Pass Club members and partners. Deer Valley Resort has partnered with Park City Community Foundation to support many local nonprofits through these Community Fund grants. Deer Valley Resort contributed $100,000 to the fund allowing the Community Foundation to grant a total of $425,000.
