WyoGives brings the state together as one community to raise awareness and funding for Wyoming’s nonprofits. This 24-hour online day-of-giving celebrates the work of organizations that provide essential services and build vibrant and healthy communities.

Among the more than 250 organizations participating were three library foundations and a friends group who collectively raised nearly $40,000:

  • Goshen County Library Foundation raised $19,375 from 113 donors.
  • Laramie County Library Foundation raised $13,510 from 71 donors.
  • Park County Library Foundation raised $1,682 from 22 donors.
  • Friends of Sheridan County Library raised $4,980 from 29 donors.

All four organizations are eligible for matching funds from a $1 million fund provided by the Hughes Charitable Foundation. This is a shared pool among all WyoGives participants, and match amounts have not yet been announced.

This year’s WyoGives raised more than $3 million from more than 5,500 donors. Learn more at wyogives.org.
