Overview:

Note: We understand the COVID-19 outbreak is impacting nonprofits in many ways, including increased demand for their services, lost revenue due to closures and cancellations, as well as other challenges. We are working closely with partners and the nonprofit community to ensure that the grants awarded meet the greatest needs in communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. In order to move resources quickly, we are not hosting a formal application process for the Fund. You may email us at diego [at] parkcitycf.org to make sure we are aware of your needs and can keep them in mind as the granting process progresses and needs become more clear.

About the Community Response Fund

Hosted by Park City Community Foundation, the Community Response Fund helps strengthen our community and respond immediately to crisis situations such as the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Community Response Fund is offering flexible resources to organizations in our area working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of this outbreak.

The fund is supporting health and human services nonprofits in greater Park City that are handling cases related to the impact of COVID-19. Targeted operating grants fund organizations that have deep roots in community and strong experience working with residents without health insurance and/or access to sick days, people with limited English language proficiency, healthcare and gig economy workers, and communities of color, among others.

The first phase of rapid-response grants will increase resiliency in disproportionately affected communities by addressing the economic impact of reduced and lost work due to the broader COVID-19 outbreak, and the immediate needs of economically vulnerable populations caused by COVID-19 related closures. The Community Foundation made the first grant within three days of activating the Fund, and will continue to make grants to support long-term recovery.

The Community Foundation expects to move an initial round of grants within the next few weeks.

Please help us ensure that basic needs are met, including food, housing, and healthcare. Your gift allows our community as a whole to better prepare for and respond to emergencies by providing flexibility to meet both immediate and planned needs that would not otherwise be readily available.

Join us to support a healthy community. Together our impact is greater.
