Wyoming Community Foundation - Wyoming Wildlife Foundation (WWF)
Grants of up to $5,800 to Wyoming nonprofits and agencies for projects addressing the wild bear population and issues related to bears in Wyoming. Priority is given to projects with established partnerships, matching funds, highest wildlife impact, management relevance, and appropriate budgets.
Funding may support research, habitat protection, education, and other projects for all species of bears. Projects will be evaluated based on the likelihood of success, project readiness, availability of matching funds, significance at local/state/regional level, duration of benefits, and adequacy of monitoring.
Out‐of‐state organizations are welcome to submit a proposal, but only if the project is clearly linked to Wyoming’s wildlife.
