Park City Community Foundation

Several local non-profits have been working, under the umbrella of the Park City Community Foundation, to help vulnerable residents impacted by COVID-19.

And although the needs of their clients are different, one major item impacting everybody is housing.

The Community Foundation hosted an electronic meeting last week, before Summit County passed a revised Health Order that lifted the Stay At Home directive.

Summit County Council Member Roger Armstrong has a recap of yesterdays’ meeting, where the council discussed the new health order on re-opening business. Former Park City Manager Diane Foster talks about her new role as the Assistant City Manager of Aspen, Colorado, and Photographer Matt Davis talks about his Front Steps Project - which has raised more than $11,000 for the Park City Community Foundation.

Summit County Health Director Rich Bullough talks about what they’re watching for as the county begins to consider what businesses might be able to reopen.

Non-profits in the Park City area are caught in a dilemma by the COVID-19 outbreak.    The needs they’re serving may well be increasing, but their ability to raise funds has been undermined.

One sign of hope, according to the Park City Community Foundation, is that the recently-approved federal stimulus can help out non-profits as well as small business.   

Katie Wright, Executive Director of the Community Foundation, said that philanthropists around Park City don’t have the resources to help out all the non-profits that need assistance.   

KPCW General Manager Renai Miller and Reporters David Boyle and Emily Means talk about how KPCW has had to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and instituted remote work spaces and limiting the number of staff and volunteers who typically access the KPCW studios. Park City Community Foundation Director Katie Wright has an update about the benefits nonprofit organizations can receive by applying for benefits from the stimulus bill.

The Park City Community Foundation has created a Community Response Fund to accept donations and rapidly deploy resources to Summit County-based organizations which serve the needs of the community especially hard hit during this coronavirus outbreak.
