PROMONTORY FOUNDATION PLEDGES $10,000 IMPACT GRANT TOWARD PARK CITY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION’S COMMUNITY RESPONSE FUND
PARK CITY, UTAH –Three
weeks following the announcement ofthe
partnership between Promontory Foundation, Promontory Club’s 501(c)(3)
non-profit, and Park City Community Foundation to develop Impact Grants within
the Park City community, Promontory Foundation has pledged a $10,000 impact
grant for the Community Response Fund. This fund, hosted by Park City Community
Foundation, is designed to strengthen the ability of local non-profits on the
front line of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) to respond immediately.
“Promontory Members have asked how they can help, and I am grateful that I can direct them to The Community Response Fund,” says Robin Milne, Promontory Foundation President. “We have asked that our lead grant multiply by at least 10-fold in order to build $100,000 or more towards this effort to “help the helpers” in Park City.”
The Community Response Fund, hosted by Park City Community Foundation, will offer flexible resources to organizations in Summit County working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of this outbreak.
“Promontory Foundation’s generous pledge and efforts to inspire Park City residents to participate will amplify our efforts during this challenging time for our community and ensure our local non-profits can make a meaningful impact in providing essential relief,” says Katie Wright, Executive Director of Park City Community Foundation. “We encourage everyone in a position to support the fund to do so by visiting https://parkcitycf.org/communityresponsefund/.”
The fund will support health and human services non-profits in greater Park City that are handling cases related to the impact of COVID-19. Targeted operating grants will 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, initiated within the next few weeks, 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.

We love to see our non-profit clients engaging in creative, grassroots fundraising efforts as opposed to relying solely on big-ticket fundraisers. Sage Mountain Animal Rescue, a new 501(c3) non-profit dedicated to the advocacy of farm animals, will present a one-time screening of the groundbreaking, provocative documentary “Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret.” It’s also a great way to raise awareness of the non-profit’s animal rescue and rehabilitation facility under development in Brown’s Canyon and its mission which the film complements. The feature-length documentary, which explores the most destructive industry facing the planet today, will screen at the Prospector Theater in Park City on Thursday, Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 and must be purchased online at http://www.tugg.com/events/11089.
Known as the film that even environmental organizations don’t want the public to see, filmmakers Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn examine the leading contributor to global warming, water depletion, wildlife extinction and deforestation and why such champions of the environment won’t address it.
Five percent of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Sage Mountain Animal Rescue. Prospector Theater is located at 2175 Sidewinder Drive, Park City. An informal gathering will be held at The Boneyard Saloon, 1251 Kearns Blvd, immediately following the screening with a cash bar offered.
Redhead is pleased to have helped Sage Mountain Animal Rescue by publicizing the film’s screening. In addition to some radio interviews and online coverage, there was a great article in this weekend’s Park Record newspaper.
