A Season for Renewal

Hello Friends of the Community Foundation,
This time last year we came to a standstill. There was a moment when everything went quiet – businesses, events, schools, nonprofits, services – and into that quiet, we reached out to each other and built bridges to bring our community into this new year.

Just as spring gives us a sample of warmer times to come, I imagine that each of you are finding your way into this year of adjustments and safe interactions. It’s likely you are considering how you spend your time going forward, knowing more about yourself than you did before. I am making promises to myself about creating space between meetings, so I don’t feel so rushed in my day that I am breathless by evening.

The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole is making fresh promises as well as we enter into this changed landscape. Our spring newsletter offers some insights into how we are moving forward with competitive grants and the Community Emergency Response Fund. I hope you’ll read about our new Board Chair, Stacey Morse, who is already delivering positivity and energy to the role.

We will have more information about mental health initiatives in coming months, and there is a feature on Mental Health JH in this issue as well.

As we open doors to spring and each other, I hope you know that the Community Foundation is here for you, as a resource and a partner. 

Warm regards,

Laurie Andrews
Community Foundation of Jackson Hole

Competitive Grants program awards $563,800 to local nonprofits

Each year, the Community Foundation awards grants across six fields of interest including Animals, Arts & Culture, Civic, Conservation & Environment, Education, Recreation, and Health & Human Services. Given the challenges facing so many this year, a focus was placed on addressing fundamental health and human service needs while still supporting the vibrancy of our community with funding for varied programs in other areas.
