Park City Community Foundation makes a small number of multiyear Community Fund Grants. The Community Foundation will specifically invite selected organizations to submit applications that cover two- or three-year periods.
Organizations not invited to submit a multi-year proposal should submit a regular annual grant proposal.
Any multiyear grants awarded will be subject to annual renewal based on the results of annual site visits, funding availability, and any other factors at the discretion of the Community Fund Grants Committee.
Park City Community Foundation will consider grant applications from organizations meeting all of the following eligibility requirements:
- Conduct activities and programs consistent with the Community Foundation’s mission.
- Serve people living or working in Summit County (Wasatch County will be considered, although grant making will primarily emphasize organizations based in Summit County).
- Qualify as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization under the Internal Revenue Code.
- Applicants without 501(c)(3) status, but which have applied to the IRS for such status, may apply. Receipt letter from the IRS of application is required at time of application to Park City Community Foundation.
- Applicants without 501(c)(3) status, but which are operating under an organization qualified as a 501(c)(3) organization, may apply separately if they have their own advisory board and have the written consent of the qualified organization. In that case, the application must contain a letter of agreement between the two organizations, which sets forth the responsibilities of each organization.
- Applicants that are not 501(c)(3) organizations, but are implementing charitable activities for the benefit of the citizens of Summit County, should contact Park City Community Foundation before applying. Under some circumstances, they may be considered for funding but will be required to adhere to separate reporting measures.
