About the Com­mu­ni­ty Foundation

The Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion of Jack­son Hole has been inspir­ing donors, invest­ing in non­prof­its, and enrich­ing our com­mu­ni­ty for 35 years. The Foun­da­tion man­ages more than $120 mil­lion in assets and our annu­al col­lab­o­ra­tive event, Old Bill’s Fun Run, has raised over $256 mil­lion for local non­prof­its. Since incep­tion, donors have relied on the Foundation’s expe­ri­enced staff to assist with cur­rent and planned giv­ing by sim­pli­fy­ing admin­is­tra­tion and pro­vid­ing insight about com­mu­ni­ty needs.

Our Mis­sion

Meet Our Team

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.

The Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion of Jack­son Hole is in good stand­ing with the Coun­cil on Foun­da­tions Nation­al Stan­dards. These stan­dards affirm our com­mit­ment to finan­cial secu­ri­ty, trans­paren­cy, and accountability.

These stan­dards estab­lish legal, eth­i­cal, effec­tive prac­tices and assure donors, gov­ern­ment and media of our com­mit­ment to best prac­tices. To achieve this cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, foun­da­tions go through a rig­or­ous peer review of orga­ni­za­tion­al and finan­cial poli­cies and pro­ce­dures. Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tions use these stan­dards to pro­mote self-reg­u­la­tion and set con­sis­tent expec­ta­tions for their boards. These stan­dards pro­vide a frame­work for doc­u­ment­ing, com­mu­ni­cat­ing and pro­vid­ing train­ing and tech­ni­cal assis­tance to advance best practices.
