The Wyoming Foundation was established in 1974 by Dr. James MacCallum as a means to strengthen the quality of life in Wyoming County by encouraging charitable giving, assessing and responding to the community’s changing needs, and serving as a springboard for local charitable activities. Since then, the Wyoming Foundation has actively supported cultural, educational and human services programs throughout the county. The Wyoming Foundation became a division of the Community Foundation in the fall of 2007 and in 2012, introduced a Needs Assessment to Wyoming County residents that identified education and an increased awareness of the county’s arts and cultural treasures as its two priority areas.

The Wyoming Foundation awards are made possible by gifts and bequests from numerous individuals and groups to serve and benefit the residents of Wyoming County. For more information about the Wyoming Foundation’s granting process, please visit www.wyomingfoundation.org.
