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 2016 grant cycle. Applications are due by 4:00 p.m. on May 6, 2016 and can be submitted online at www.wyomingfoundation.org.

For more than 40 years the Wyoming Foundation has made the most of the generosity of its clients to benefit all Wyoming County residents. The Wyoming Foundation’s $2 million endowment has supported a wide variety of cultural, educational and human services organizations that specialize in enhancing the county’s arts and cultural institutions, improving literacy and strengthening the county’s cradle-to-career pipeline.

The Wyoming Foundation’s 2016 grant cycle will prioritize applications that focus solely on preparing high school graduates for training and education opportunities that lead to jobs in the County, as well as increasing participation in arts and cultural offerings.

Approximately $13,000 is available for the 2016 grant cycle. Individual grants can range between $500 and $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, Crossroads House, Eagle Free Library, Warsaw Historical Society and Wyoming Free Circulating Library Association.
