The John P. Ellbogen Foundation  is actively involved not only making grants to organizations that fit within our mission, but also running and promoting initiatives and programs specific to the desired outcomes of the foundation. The initiatives have focused on teachers, leadership, and impacting education on a statewide level in order to meet the needs of children so they grow up safe, healthy, and prepared for life. Our current initiatives are the Wyoming National Board Certification Initiative, Ellbogen Meritorious Schools, and the Ellbogen Leadership and Advocacy Institute
