Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grant of approximately $40,000 to a Utah nonprofit organization for a project that will benefit women and children in eligible communities. The successful project will be one that has a high impact on the community, addresses a root issue, and changes the lives of local women and children in need. Eligible projects are those that benefit residents of Summit County.

The mission of the Community Foundation’s Park City Women’s Giving Fund is Park City women supporting other Summit County women and children in need through endowed, high impact philanthropy. Women’s Giving Fund will use earned income from the Women’s Giving Fund endowment to fund an annual high impact grant that supports women and/or children in need in Summit County, Utah. A high impact project is one that can provide measurable outcomes that are transformative in the way they change lives, alter a community, or address a root issue, rather than acting as a temporary solution. Impact may vary based on a nonprofit’s size. Collaboration within the community is encouraged.

Grants may support program/project costs, capital projects and equipment, consulting services, matching funds, technical assistance, and joint requests from multiple applicants (collaborations).

Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Demonstrate need with relevant data and facts
  • Demonstrate attainable goals and objectives, which include a timeline for implementation
  • Demonstrate an ability to measure and evaluate the program/project and communicate its outcomes to the Women’s - Giving Fund membership if awarded the grant
  • Demonstrate commitment to diversity, equity & inclusion.
