Park City Performing Arts Foundation, DBA Park City Institute
February 24, 2010
Having been fortunate enough to be a part of this organization since the premier season, I've seen first hand how PCPAF has touched and improved the lives of all the people in this community. Students, the hispanic community, local organizations, our senior citizens and religious organizations are among the groups that benefit from activities supported by PCPAF.
The amount of outreach in the arts our students receive is first rate. From music to dance, from speakers to Sundance films, our children have the opportunity to see and participate in the performing arts on a very personal level.
Many of our underrepresented residents have the opportunity for complementary and reduced price tickets for events. PCPAF staff make sure to include various other nonprofit organizations on a regular basis.
Many children have the opportunity to have their first music or dance recital on stage because of this wonderful facility. The Catholic church is able to provide Christmas Eve mass to over 2,000 locals and guests. Funeral services, films, lectures, and community service meetings are held here on a regular basis. This requires the efforts of PCPAF staff to organize, prepare, and attend these events at great effort on PCPAF's part. The PCPAF board, staff and volunteers are famous for their efforts. I am proud to be a part of such a fine organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The local schools. At one point, I calculated the cost of student outreach was ~ 5% of the per student budget in PCSD (noncapital expenses)
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The variety of acts. PCPAF brings more than just the "popular" acts, but makes us think about art.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Famous with Sundance. Over the years, our volunteers where sought out by other organizations for their commitment and reliability
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Save the world, or at least Summit County.
