Park City Community Foundation

Park City's Day of Giving brought in a record-breaking $4.5 million as the Community Foundation-sponsored event wrapped up its 11th year. 

Live PC Give PC Community Chair Brandi Connally said the goal this year, instead of a dollar figure, was to increase community participation. The Park City Community Foundation goal was 6,500 unique donors, meaning for example that a family of four could have each member donate any amount over $5, and that family would count as four unique donors. Connally said, while they fell a little short of that goal, the money raised was significantly more than last year.
"I mean, we were a million dollars over last year, and we were significantly higher than last year on donors as well. And that is a success. You know, we tried to set a stretch goal of 6,500 donors, and we weren't quite there. But man, nobody can argue with the numbers that we got being a positive outcome for this community."

Of the well over $4 million raised, about a quarter came from matching donations. Marketing and Communications Vice President Christine Coleman believes the growth in Summit County's population and the increasing community engagement will continue. And she expects donor numbers will increase year over year.
“$1,132,000 in matching donations. It's inspiring to see everybody come together as they did on Friday to support our entire community, not just in Park City, but also, you know, throughout Summit County and many programs in Wasatch County as well. So that's really significant.”

Connally said there is additional funding for the organizations with the highest number of individual donations.

Live PC Give PC had six leaderboard categories: People and Advocacy, Keep on Moving, Arts and Culture, Healthy Minds and Bodies, Education, and Environment, and Animals. You can find the results of the leaderboard winners on livepcgivepc.org.

Overall, the top three nonprofits for Live PC Give PC
2021 were Mountain Trails Foundation, Park City Education Foundation, and Summit Land Conservancy.
