The Hughes Charitable Foundation will match donations to Wyoming nonprofit organizations of up to $1 million on Wednesday in honor of the 24-hour WyoGives campaign, the foundation has announced.

WyoGives is an initiative created by the Wyoming Nonprofit Network that sets one day, Wednesday this year, to celebrate nonprofit organizations across the state.

As of Wednesday morning, more than $530,000 had been raised for nonprofits across the state. Protect Our Water Jackson Hole had received the most money as of press time, with more than $45,000 raised.

More than 1,600 people had donated before noon on Wednesday.

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., those facing multiple challenges that prevent them from gaining a solid financial footing.

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).

Since 2017, the Hughes Charitable Foundation has given over $4 million to 76 Wyoming-based nonprofits. 

Now the Hughes Charitable Foundation is launching a new website, a Facebook page, and has recently opened an office in Jackson.

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).
