Early Grant Information for NGOs
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. The impact may vary based on a nonprofit’s size. Collaboration within the community is encouraged.
The 2021 Women’s Giving Fund Grant award amount will be approximately $40,000. Park City Community Foundation’s Board of Directors will annually set the amount for the grant.
Funding can be awarded in one year, but disbursed over 1-3 years depending on outcomes achieved. Funds must be used within 3 years of receiving the grant.
