WY Community Foundation Supports Local Nonprofits
Recently, a number of Sheridan and Johnson county nonprofits were awarded grants totaling $44,000 from the Wyoming Community Foundation’s (WYCF) Sheridan-Johnson Local Board. In its first distribution of 2019, the foundation granted over $3 million to various organizations across the state.
“It is such a privilege to be able to support outstanding nonprofits in the area,” said Local Board Chair Donna Kinskey. “Learning about the good work that is happening every day in our community makes me proud to live here.”
The WYCF holds nearly 400 funds for families, individual donors, businesses, and nonprofits, which are then invested. The dividends are used to support charitable causes.
Local grant recipients:
- Absaroka, Inc. Head Start
- Buffalo Children’s Center, Inc.
- Children, Horses, and Adults in Partnership for Therapeutic Riding (CHAPS)
- Greater Wyoming Big Brothers Big Sisters
- Habitat for Humanity of the Eastern Big Horns
- Hoofprints of the Past Museum
- Joey’s Fly-Fishing Foundation
- Johnson County Friends Feeding Friends
- The Food Group, Inc.
In 2018, WYCF granted $6.4 million to charitable organizations across the state.
The Wyoming Community Foundation’s next grant application deadline is June 15th. Nonprofit organizations working to strengthen their communities are encouraged to apply.
