Micro Grants Program
The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole awards micro grants to fund projects for $3,000 or less.
To be eligible for funding, an organization must be a 501(c)(3), governmental entity, or other IRS recognized charitable organization serving Teton County, Wyoming. Grant funds must be used in Teton County, Wyoming.
Applicants may request up to $3,000 every twelve months. Larger requests must be submitted within the Community Foundation’s Competitive Grants program. In exceptional situations, the Committee may consider time-sensitive grants for more than $3,000.
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.
Consistent with our Competitive Grants, awards are based upon expected impact.
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 Grants Program are not eligible for funding. The Community Foundation does not fund projects retroactively.
