Since 2017, the Hughes Charitable Foundation has given over $4 million to 76 Wyoming-based nonprofits.
The Hughes Charitable 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,” Hughes said. “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 is committed to supporting 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 (Jackson, WY), Ty Green (San Luis Obispo, CA), Liz Brimmer (Lander, WY), Lydia Heinbockel (Alpine, WY), and Jim Gersack (Jackson, WY).
