Overview:

McMurry Foundation Grant

The McMurry Foundation was established in 1998 to have a significant and beneficial impact on the communities within Wyoming. Special emphasis is in Natrona County, Wyoming in the areas of education, religion, children and advocacy for children, health and human services, the arts and humanities, and favorable business environments. In carrying out our work, we are guided by the values of excellence and compassion.

The Foundation invests in...

...innovative ventures as well as established community programs that have the potential to make a lasting difference. We provide seed money to start new programs as well as general funds to expand or improve services offered by established agencies. We also help organizations within our community become more self-sufficient through strategic planning, increasing management capacity, and board development, in order for these organizations to better serve community needs. As we move forward, we will continue to nurture the spirit of innovation while discovering how communities can learn from and share more productivity with each other.
