Apr 10, 2015 | Posted in News

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 2015 grant cycle. Applications are due May 1, 2015 and can be submitted at www.wyomingfoundation.org.

For more than 40 years the Wyoming Foundation has leveraged the generosity of its donors to benefit all Wyoming County residents. The Wyoming Foundation’s $1.84 million endowment has actively supported a wide variety of cultural, educational and human services organizations that specialize in improving literacy, enhancing the county’s arts and cultural institutions, and building upon solutions for the county’s education-to-jobs pipeline.

After hosting a historic Needs Forum in 2012 to gauge the challenges in the County’s health, arts and culture, education and business sectors, the Wyoming Foundation’s 2015 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 $13,000 is available for the 2015 grant cycle and individual grants will range from $500 to $2,000. Wyoming Foundation awards have been funded by generous 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, Stevens Memorial Community Library and Western New York Rural Area Health Education Center, Inc.
