Warsaw, NY -- The Wyoming Foundation, a division of the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, is now accepting grant applications from Wyoming County nonprofit organizations for its 2014 grant cycle. Applications are due May 1, 2014 and can be submitted at www.wyomingfoundation.org.

Since 1977, the Wyoming Foundation has actively supported a wide variety of cultural, educational and human services organizations throughout Wyoming County. Formerly focused on providing funding solely to the Wyoming County Hospital, the Wyoming Foundation expanded its scope to provide support for the community’s general needs in the late 1980’s. In 2007, the Wyoming Foundation joined forces with the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, increasing its capacity and philanthropic scope to better serve County residents and address emerging needs.

As a result of a 2012 Wyoming County Needs Forum to assess the current needs of the county, the Wyoming Foundation’s 2014 grant cycle will prioritize applications that focus solely on preparing high school graduates for training and education opportunities (leading to jobs in Wyoming County), as well as increasing participation in arts & cultural offerings.

Approximately $12,000 is available for the 2014 grant cycle and individual grants will range from $500 to $2,000. Wyoming Foundation awards have been built by gifts and bequests from numerous individuals and groups. The Wyoming Foundation has most recently provided grants to the Arts Council for Wyoming County, Eagle Free Library, Perry Public Library, and Western New York Rural Area Health Education Center, Inc.
