Women’s Giving Fund awards $60K grant to PC Tots

PARK CITY, Utah — On Wednesday, July 12, the Park City Community Foundation (PCCF) announced PC Tots as the recipient of its 2023 Women’s Giving Fund Grant.

Out of the $100,000 awarded by the Women’s Giving Fund at its annual Grant Celebration, PC Tots will receive $60,000, and runners up SOS Outreach and Summit Community Gardens + EATS will receive $20,000 each.

The three finalists were selected by the Women’s Giving Fund Steering Committee, and the members of the Women’s Giving Fund voted for the winner. The organizations were honored at a Grant Celebration on July 12, sponsored by Park City Mountain and Vail Resorts EpicPromise. Over 300 women were in attendance.

“Our Women’s Giving Fund Steering Committee went through an extensive process to select the three finalists for 2023 and hundreds voted for the winner,” said Dalia Gonzalez, chair of the Women’s Giving Fund Steering Committee. “When local women come together to address some of our community’s most significant issues, we drive powerful change. Over the years, these grants have made possible so many urgently needed services right here in Park City and Summit County.”

According to a press release from the Women’s Giving Fund, PC Tots will use part of the $60,000 grant for tuition assistance for children from lower-income families, and part of the grant to support higher wages, comprehensive benefits and professional development for the PC Tots team of early childcare staff members.

PC Tots also received the Women’s Giving Fund’s inaugural grant of $30,000 in 2014, which they used to start their program in Park City.

“It’s just so exciting that like 10 years later they’re receiving this award, and it’s double the the size of the grant,” said Rebecca Blanchette, development manager at the PCCF. “I’m just so excited to see what they do with that money now.”

The $100,000 in grants that was awarded this year is a significant increase compared to the $45,000 that was granted last year, and the Women’s Giving Fund hopes to grant still more in the future.

“One thing that we asked our members to do was to donate honorary memberships to community members who might not be able to afford the membership, and really they showed up and they did that,” Blanchette said. “Now as we’re talking about the future of Women’s Giving Fund, we’re hoping that some Women’s Giving Fund members will commit to some five and 10 year donations so that we can be able to sustain the size of this new grant… We’re thinking a lot about being able to increase that grant and have greater impact in the community right now.”
