Strategic Plan 2022 – 2025

The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole’s mission is to improve lives through philanthropic leadership. We envision a community where people and place thrive.

The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole’s Strategic Plan is focused on building a more resilient and equitable community, and the foundation has identified three strategic priorities as the best way to achieve this goal.

Identify root causes of key community issues. Use data to prioritize the opportunities where we can impact the issues. Convene diverse voices to develop solutions. Fund these solutions. Current initiatives are focused on behavioral health, housing solutions, and education and families.

Put existing Community Foundation funding to work on evolving community needs. Learn more.

Inspire increased and high-impact giving. Provide resources and expertise to new and current fundholders and donors.
