This comes from this morning’s Casper Star-Tribune. Note that there are a number of arts groups that received grants from the Casper Area Community Foundation, which is just one of the local entities affiliated with the Wyoming Community Foundation. Most of them give grants. The others are in the Dubois Area, Evanston Area, Park County, Rock Springs Area and Sheridan-Johnson. Here’s the news from Casper:
The Casper Area Community Foundation recently awarded a total of $131,654 in grants to Casper and Douglas nonprofits.
The largest of 14 grants went to the Child Advocacy Project Inc., which collaborates with organizations to reduce the trauma caused when victims of child abuse must repeatedly tell their stories, according to a CACF press release.
The second largest grant went to CLIMB Wyoming, which assists low-income, single mothers in obtaining training needed for a professional position.
The foundation also awarded grants to the Arc of Natrona County, Artcore Inc., the Casper Chamber Music Society, the Casper Family YMCA, The Science Zone, the 12-24 Club Inc., the Cadoma Foundation, Children and Nutrition Services Inc., Joshua’s Storehouse & Distribution, Reach 4A Star Riding Academy, the Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps Inc., the Women’s Self Help Center and the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra.
