Micro-Grant Application

Eligibility
To be eligible for funding, an organization must be a 501 (C) 3, government entity, or other IRS recognized charitable entity providing services to residents of Teton County, Wyoming.

Available Funds
Micro-grants provide funding for requests up to $1,000. For projects with needs in excess of this amount, please see the Community Foundation’s competitive grant guidelines and application form on our website. In exceptional situations, the Committee may occasionally make grants larger than $1,000.

What kinds of projects are appropriate for a micro-grant?
Projects that are unique, unexpected, unanticipated, one-time and demonstrate potential to make a meaningful impact in our community are preferred. Projects that require quick granting action in order to address a community problem or situation are also preferred.

Projects that request funding for recurring expenses, travel expenses, general operating expenses, routine maintenance, or grants that have been previously funded by the Community Foundation or requested more than once within a twelve-month period are discouraged.

Restrictions
The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole does not provide support for the following: religious activities, debt retirement, political activities, or organizations working primarily to influence legislation. Grant applications that have been previously submitted to the Competitive Grant Program are not eligible for funding. The Community Foundation does not fund projects retroactively.
