At Gallery MAR, we are always looking for ways to give back and pass on our success.  In that spirit, I am pleased to pass on an exciting opportunity that helps give back to the Park City we know and love.

The Park City Foundation just has announced their newest way for locals and part-timers to support our community’s not-for-profit organizations and give back to our arts organizations… and get a great deal on skiing and golf at the same time! The “Community Pass” supports the Community Fund:  an annual, competitive grant process for Summit County’s charitable organizations. And by buying one for you and your family in Park City, you support support the nonprofit organizations that preserve what we value.

Here’s the good stuff: the Community Pass gives you access to 8 exclusive golf resorts plus ski and ride days at both Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons. You can learn more about these opportunities on The Park City Foundation’s website.

Since 2008, the Community Fund has granted over $200,000 to more than 25 organizations- for operating costs, new and existing programs and for capacity building projects. Grants supported all types of nonprofit organizations including arts organizations.  Each year The Park City Foundation will expand the program to support our community more fully– to make it a great place to live, work, visit and enjoy– now and in the future. Passes are available for a mostly-tax deductible $8,000 contribution to the Community Fund.

Not interested in golf or skiing? Here are more ways to get involved.
