About this funder:



For over 25 years the Wyoming Community Foundation (WYCF) has connected people who care with causes that matter to build a better Wyoming. Over the years we have granted nearly $50 million to Wyoming nonprofits, while also providing a variety of supports to our agency fund holders.

WYCF serves donors and communities by connecting them to causes they care most about. We make giving easy by accepting a wide-range of gifts, including estates and gifts of stock among others.  WYCF is overseen by a volunteer board who ensures your funds are being used to best support Wyoming.

WYCF is focused on funding programs that meet the needs of Wyoming communities. We accept applications in the areas of:

  • Arts and Culture;
  • Health and Human Services;

  • Education;

  • Environment and Conservation; and

  • Civic and Community Building.
