Sam Jackenthal was more than just an athlete. While Sam was a talented, fearless, and committed athlete, he was also generous and kind. It was through his character, not his talent, that Sam left behind a legacy of positivity in his community.
We aim to meet the most pressing unfulfilled needs of Park City Area youth. Through our scholarship program, we inspire and grow the social and emotional health of our community's youth by proving opportunities to pursue their passions, give back to the community, and live life to the fullest, just like Sam did.
This application is now closed. Thank you to all of those who applied.
The purpose of the Give Like Sam Grant is to provide resources for young, community-minded individuals (and groups) to plan and carry out meaningful service projects to benefit the Summit County Communities. We encourage students to identify needs in our community, brainstorm solutions and apply for funding to put their plan into action. All ideas are welcome, no matter how big or small.
