The Park City Community Foundation’s twelfth annual Live PC Give PC event kicks off on Friday, November 4th.
Organizers said they hope the day of giving will raise the most money ever for more than 120 local nonprofit organizations.
The event raised a record $4.5 million in 2021.
Over the past few years, the community foundation’s goal has been to increase the number of what it calls “unique donors,” rather than dollars.
Park City Community Foundation Vice President of Equity and Impact Diego Zegarra said the goal this year is to hit 6,500 donors, a goal they missed last year by 6,200.
“As we see growth in our community, we believe there is an opportunity to encourage more people to come join us in the fun and give to their favorite nonprofits with a minimum donation of $5,” Zegarra said.
He said they learn that the more people contribute, the more money is raised.
“We used to have a dollar target, but we got away from it about three years ago,” Zegarra said.
A unique donor is anyone with their own email address, so members of the same family donating from their own email accounts would be multiple unique donors.
The community foundation will be holding a party to celebrate at Town Lift Plaza on November 4th from 4:00pm – 9:00pm.
“It’s a family-friendly event and we are, knock on wood, hoping for decent weather,” Zegarra said. “But either way, we’ll be there in full force and we invite nonprofits, donors, sponsors and other community members to come and join us.”
Early bird donations are now being accepted online at livepcgivepc.org.
