Wyoming Foundation

From picturesque hillsides to postcard-worthy towns, Wyoming County is full of charm and history.

With the goal of improving the lives of residents, the Wyoming Foundation was created in 1976 by Dr. James MacCallum. Today, it continues to serve as a trusted partner to provide deep local knowledge and a vehicle through which individuals give to causes and organizations they care about. In addition to the work that the Wyoming Foundation does assisting generous individuals and families make a difference through their giving, each year it runs a competitive grants process where funding is distributed to support local nonprofit organizations.

In 2023, the Wyoming Foundation Council learned from local healthcare providers that County youth were in need of additional support due to conditions exacerbated by the pandemic, such as isolation and academic struggles. In turn, it encouraged innovative, collaborative requests for funding that addressed youth mental health for its grants process.

As a result, more than $21,000 was awarded to six Wyoming County nonprofit organizations. The grant recipients include: Arts Council for Wyoming County, Eagle Free Library, Perry Rotary Foundation/Perry Literacy Center, Shake on the Lake, WNY Rural Area Health Education Center and Wyoming Free Circulating Library Association.
