Special Opportunities Fund
Created in 2016, this fund provides financial support for the work
of Capacity Building and Collective Impact Committees.
The Capacity Building Committee focuses significant resources on supporting the expansion and effectiveness of essential organizations in Teton County. This committee has done extensive work to support One22, a merger of the Community Resource Center,
El Puente and the Latino Resource Center.
The Collective Impact Committee targets specific issues to explore root causes, develop objectives toward solutions and identify gaps in services. Through Community Conversations, this committee has convened stakeholders around issues of impending cuts in government funding, an increase in suicidal ideation among local teens, collaboration among conservation nonprofits and workforce housing. These Community Conversations bring nonprofits, government entities and businesses together, connect nonprofits with new resources and help develop strategies to address these issues.
