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.
