Women's Giving Fund

When the women and girls of Park City join together, they’re an unstoppable force—and the Women’s Giving Fund makes it possible. With a mission of supporting women and children in need, Women’s Giving Fund awards high-impact grants to local organizations that are making a difference. But that’s just the beginning. With service and social events throughout the year, Women’s Giving Fund is more than a circle of philanthropists. It’s an entire community of women helping women.

The idea behind the Women’s Giving Fund is simple. Each member donates at least $1,000, which can be split into monthly payments of just $84, and together their donations grow. Since 2014, more than 1,400 people have contributed to the Women’s Giving Fund, which has skyrocketed to over $1,500,000. The fund is endowed by Park City Community Foundation, and grants to local nonprofits are made from its earnings in perpetuity—so Park City women can feel the love of their community for generations to come.

Our goal is to facilitate access to these opportunities to create a more inclusive, integrated, and complete community. We would like to see child participation in athletics reflect the diverse makeup of our town. Our goal is to reach 21% Latino participation in programs that are currently being offered in Park City, mirroring the percentage of students in our school district.

This initiative aims to address several barriers that currently hinder participation for these families. Key barriers include communication and outreach, transportation, and scholarships and gear.

Communication and Outreach: Historically, opportunities that have been available have often gone unnoticed due to a major gap in communication between organizations and families. Translation of promotional materials, and outreach, are an important piece to this puzzle that we are taking on.

Transportation: Transportation to and from activities seems to be an ongoing obstacle for working parents. With the collaboration of several agencies offering additional transportation, more children will able to access the sports and recreational opportunities that our community has to offer.

Scholarships and Gear: Scholarship opportunities currently exist but do not fully support the actual need of Latino children in the Park City School District. The Solomon Fund has begun to collaborate with many agencies in town to help supplement and provide additional scholarships for children in need.
