Virtually all donations received by SSHFWY will be distributed as grants to qualified applicants. Having now established a small funds base, SSHFWY is now in a position to award grants. 

Normally there is one grant cycle each year, with completed grant applications due by July 1 and grants awarded by December 1. However, in an effort to encourage grant application submittals, the SSHFWY Board decided on August 2, 2016 to institute four (4) grant cycles annually until further notice. Critical dates for these grant cycles are shown below.

Please read through the SSHFWY Grant Application to ensure you qualify before filling out the application. The grant application package includes detailed guidelines, information and checklists to help applicants fill out the application correctly and completely.

Following are additional guidelines for grant applications.

  1. Applicants will need to complete the grant application in its entirety, with required signatures and supporting documentation, in order to be considered. Incomplete applications or applications not received by the deadline will not be considered.
  2. All grant communication from SSHFWY will come to you electronically, so the Grant Contact should have the ability to receive and monitor email.
  3. Organizations are not required to be a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity to be eligible for a SSHFWY grant, but all grant recipients must be at least recognized as nonprofit organization by the state of Wyoming.
  4. SSHFWY cannot provide any assistance or funding to for-profit business ventures.
  5. SSHFWY cannot provide funding to LLCs.
  6. Grants may be awarded to members-only clubs if the youth activity or project for which you are requesting funding will benefit the public.
  7. The final report for a grant awarded is due within 30 days of the grant project end date or on the first anniversary of the grant award date, whichever comes first. Final reports must be submitted before organizations will be awarded future grants.
