We have established a fund to provide financial support to local nonprofits for their extra-ordinary and unprecedented expenses related to Covid-19. Our social services nonprofits, which make up the core of our Laramie Community, provide for many basic needs, including food, clothing, and shelter. The fund we have created, COVID-19 Response Fund, is providing micro-grants to local nonprofits with these emergency expenses. The last thing we want is for a food pantry, shelter, or service provider to think twice about cleaning or sanitizing because it isn’t in the budget.
BECOME A FUNDING PARTNER
The fund has raised a budget of over $150,000, with support from our Emergency Fund and several partners including:
- ANB Bank
- First Interstate Bank and the First Interstate Foundation
- Blue FCU

- Wells Fargo and the Wells Fargo Foundation
