Since 2017, the Hughes Charitable Foundation has given over $4 million to 76 Wyoming-based nonprofits. Now
now opened an office in Jackson.
The Foundation primarily supports nonprofits that serve people who are in the “impact
zone” – as described by Foundation Chairman B. Wayne Hughes, Jr., “the impact zone is a surfing metaphor
describing waves that are insurmountable. Many people live in the impact zone – they are challenged with one
major crisis after another, and struggle to gain steady footing. Our foundation is here to let people know that
they are not alone,” Hughes said.
“We hope that our grants will be game changers for Wyoming’s single mothers, at-risk children, housing
insecure, mentally ill, missing and murdered indigenous women, foster youth, veterans and emergency
responders. We are guided by the golden rule, ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’ We love Wyoming deeply,”
said Molly Hughes, Executive Director.
The Hughes Charitable Foundation supports non-profit organizations that are directly
helping people across the state who need it the most. The foundation’s board members are B. Wayne Hughes,
Jr. and Molly Hughes of Jackson, Ty Green of San Luis Obispo, CA, Liz Brimmer of Lander, Lydia
Heinbockel from Alpine,, and Jim Gersack from Jackson.
