Live Like Sam Foundation is proud to announce the winners of our first-ever Give Like Sam Grant! Eight Summit County student groups hoping to help make Park City a better place in unique and inspiring ways were granted funding from our organization to support their community service projects. We are so excited to see how these young Parkites use this funding to create a healthier, happier community — just like Sam always strove to do.
What is the Give Like Sam Grant?
In November 2021, Live Like Sam Foundation began accepting applications for the inaugural Give Like Sam Grant scholarship program. Through this initiative, Summit County students in grades 6 – 12 were welcome to apply for up to $750 in funding to support a community service project of their own creation. Students submitted grant proposals to our organization detailing their plans for how they wished to use the funds to better their communities.
“It was inspiring to see how many young people truly care about their communities,” said our co-founder and creator of the Give Like Sam Grant initiative, Skylar Jackenthal. “These students have incredibly generous, brilliant ideas, and we’re excited to play a role in helping those seeds of selflessness grow and thrive.”
Winners were notified on January 21, 2022, and all community service projects that received funding must be completed by May 31, 2022.
