Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $5,000 to New York nonprofit organizations for programs to benefit the community in eligible locations. Areas of focus include arts and culture, education, and youth mental health issues related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Applicants must be located or deliver services in Wyoming County.

The Wyoming Foundation was established as a means to improve the quality of life in Wyoming County.  The Foundation will support initiatives and programs that can show maximum positive impact on Wyoming County.

As a result of the 2012 Needs Assessment, the Wyoming Foundation identified two priorities for its work:

  • To provide educational opportunities to youth, which equip them for future careers.
  • Support and promote arts/cultural opportunities in Wyoming County.

Healthcare providers are reporting that youth are in need of additional supports due to conditions exacerbated by the pandemic, such as isolation, disruptions to daily life, academics, etc. Therefore, in addition to the above priorities, for its 2021 competitive grants process, the Wyoming Foundation is encouraging innovative, collaborative requests that address youth (defined as 18/under) mental health.
