Grants Benefit Local Interests

Daniels

Two Wyoming nonprofits with local ties received $51,200 in grants from the Daniels Fund. The Jackson Christian Association has received a $24,500 grant to support its mission to provide an environment conducive to the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of families and individuals in need.  The program also works together with other Jackson Hole non-profits, assisting individuals and families in need with emergency and supportive transitional programs that assist and encourage them to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency.  Another grant was awarded to the Wyoming Lodging and Restaurant Association Education Foundation. The $26,700 grant supports the Wyoming Hospitality Ethics Initiative which introduces and integrates the Code of the West “Ten Principles to Live By” into their school-to-career programs and establishes a state-wide principled ethics model program.   Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television who launched his first system in Casper, established the Daniels Fund to operate the Daniels Fund  to assist nonprofits in areas including Aging, Alcoholism & Substance Abuse, Amateur Sports, Disabilities, Education, Homeless & Disadvantaged and Youth Development.

  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
