Promontory Foundation creates “Save the Arts” high impact grant
PARK CITY, UTAH – Promontory Foundation and the Park City Community Foundation have once again partnered to raise funds for a significant impact grant, this time to “Save the Arts,” following their first impact grant – a lead gift to the Community Response Fund in March. For this new grant, Promontory selected five nonprofits to receive support from the $65,000 that was raised. These include USUO Deer Valley Music Festival, Park City Film Series, Mountain Town Music, Kimball Arts Center, and Egyptian Theater.
“These funds are crucial in helping these cultural nonprofits, who have been unable to offer their regular programming due to the coronavirus pandemic,” says Robin Milne, General Manager of Promontory Club. “As active members of the Park City community spending more time here than ever, Promontory members are enthusiastic supporters and consumers of local arts organizations. It’s important to them to help ensure the survival of these nonprofits as they are an essential aspect of what makes Park City life so vibrant.”
The $65,000 will be disbursed to the five nonprofits in accordance with need.
Katie Wright, Executive Director of the Park City Community Foundation says, “Our partnership with the Promontory Foundation allows us to help keep some of our most important arts organizations afloat through the pandemic, at a time when donations have decreased, and programming has been severely limited since the March shutdown. As a community with a great affinity for the arts, we want them to survive and be able to thrive once their dynamic offerings can safely resume.”
Some of these cherished arts organizations have been able to pivot this summer and offer creative out-of-the-box programming. Park City Film Series has offered drive-in film screenings at Utah Olympic Park, and Mountain Town Music has created a Door to Door Concert series for performances at private homes and neighborhoods. But these limited offerings are simply not enough to address their funding challenges. The “Save the Arts” impact grant will help alleviate the financial strain and help them maintain their presence in our thriving community.
