As we move into the season where being thankful is the focus, many people look for how they can give back. Those that live in Park City and are looking to show their thankfulness for the beautiful town they live in can participate in the upcoming Live PC Give PC on November 9, 2018.
What Is Live PC Give PC
Live PC Give PC is a 24-hour period dedicated to raising funds for various nonprofits located in Park City. These nonprofits span a range of interests from supporting the arts to animals.
This event is spearheaded by the Park City Community Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to develop an enduring philanthropic community for all those who reside in Park City. Their mission came about as the founding members looked for ways to support the Park City community through supporting local nonprofits who provided services to the area.
Aside from the Live PC Give PC event, the Park City Community Foundation works with nonprofits year-round, helping them locate grants and donors so the Park City community can be kept vibrant and strong.
Which Park City Charities Benefit
As awareness of the Live PC Give PC event rises, more Park City charities have started to participate. If there is a particular type of nonprofit you would prefer to support, you can filter your search to find a charity that matches your interests. The current nonprofit categories are:
- Arts & Culture

You can also sort for matching grants and volunteer opportunities, as well as if the nonprofit is a fundraiser, fundraising team, or nonprofit organization. If you are looking to claim your donation as a tax write-off, be sure to check that the nonprofit you choose is a 501(c)3 charity or your donation will not be eligible for a tax deduction.
