Park City Community Foundation

The Park City Community Foundation earlier this week announced the recipient of its Women’s Giving Fund high-impact grant.

The $35,000 grant is going to the People’s Health Clinic, good news for an organization entering its 20th year.

Katie Wright, from the Foundation, said that in 2013 they planned to get $1,000 donations each from 1,000 people. That one-million-dollar endowment would go towards the needs of women and children.

Wright said this week’s announcement is their 5th grant.

The developer of the APEX project at Canyons Village, which is nearing completion, and the 152-unit Pendry Residences, which plans to break ground later this month, has stepped up to help fund the Early Childhood Initiative,  a project funded through the Park City Community Foundation. The program will help benefit the children of immigrants, the immigrants who he will eventually need to staff his development projects.

On KPCW's Mountain Money, Brian Shirken, the President of Columbus Pacific, talks about Pendry, a luxury resort at the base of Canyons Village.

Park City Municipal and the Park City Community Foundation are forging ahead with their social equity efforts. 

To get everyone on the same page for the conversation around social equity, Park City Community Foundation Community Impact Director Ollie Wilder likes to break down the umbrella of social equity into three terms: diversity, equity and inclusion.

Housing is a critical priority for Park City—and a survey shows it also appears to be a barrier to the city’s social equity goals. 

Allie has lived in Park City for eight years. In the past, she worked at a Park City preschool—now she’s in hospitality. But after living in the same apartment in Prospector for six years, Allie has to move out, and finding something in her price range within city limits is proving difficult.

Park City Council has established social equity as a critical priority and last year granted a $100 thousand dollar contract to Park City Community Foundation to define and implement a community wide plan. One element of the plan is about to launch - it’s a social equity book club which will gather for the first-time next Monday. Carolyn Murray has this:

When it all ended Friday at midnight, Live PC Give PC had broken its records for both funds raised and the number of donors. 

Park City Community Foundation reports Live PC Give PC surpassed their goal of 4,500 unique donors – with 4,790 people contributing to area non-profits. They also raised over $2.4 million -- a $400,000 increase from last year. Park City Community Foundation board member Mike Ruzek reports that changing the organizations focus to unique donors was a success.

The program director for the foundation, Ollie Wilder, said they handed out over $177,000 last week, the largest amount in their history.

KPCW was one of the non-profits which received a multi-year grant.
