Please do not submit a Letter of Inquiry form for the following expenses, as these requests will not be funded:
  • Capital campaigns or building renovation costs,
  • Lobbying,
  • Conducting voter registration drives or influencing public elections.
As you generate content for the fields below, please consider the following:
  • The Foundation prioritizes funding for initiatives and activities that serve the state of Wyoming or a region of the state. Occasionally, funding will be granted to particularly innovative or enterprising initiatives and activities that serve only a single community.
  • The Foundation values a systemic approach to problem-solving that recognizes the multidimensional nature of needs and problems as well as solutions. Partnership and collaboration is critical to achieving systems-wide and sustainable change in skills, knowledge, mindsets, behaviors and/or circumstances.
  • The Foundation sees capacity building as an intentional, integrated process that spans every priority area to develop and invest in the future capabilities of individuals, organizations,  and communities so that they move toward sustainable, meaningful change.
