Making a Difference
How the Initiative is Changing Wyoming
The Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative was established in 2016 under the fiscal sponsorship of the Wyoming Community Foundation to provide statewide breast cancer detection funding and survivor services, without eligibility limitations. We received our nonprofit exemption status in 2019. Our minimum granting goal is $75k-$100k annually to Wyoming-only breast health programs that fulfill our mission.
Since its inception, WBCI has granted over $830,000 through more than 100 Grants focusing on breast health in all 23 counties across Wyoming. Check out our annual report to see the impact across the state.
The WBCI aims to raise awareness and fund breast cancer programs in Wyoming with an emphasis on increasing breast health education, financially assisting breast cancer screenings, facilitating patient navigation, and promoting survivor services through fundraising efforts across the state, proceeds remain in Wyoming to grant into eligible programs.
