One of the unique and lesser-known aspects of the Community Foundation is our Community Catalyst Program. This program allows us to serve as a resource, convener, and community stakeholder for local nonprofits, donors, and the community at large to address crucial issues facing our locale.
Last summer that allowed the Foundation to address a critical shortage of affordable childcare during the summer months. This pilot program worked with local nonprofits and the school district to provide a safe, affordable, and educational summer for students. With collaboration and forethought, this pilot program was able to transform into the after-school program, whose federal grant money had been exhausted after a 5-year grant. As a result, 87 kids currently have access to free tutoring and academic enrichment opportunities after school.
With your backing, we continue to keep our finger on the pulse of Teton Valley. Ready and willing to help elevate lives through the power of generosity.
Thank you for your support!
