Thank you for making WyoGives an incredible success! It was heartwarming to watch our state and neighbors come together to support the heartbeat of our communities: our nonprofits. More than 190 nonprofits across the state participated in WyoGives, and an unbelievable total of $2.36 million was raised, and more than $235,277 was raised by 18 nonprofits right here in Campbell County.
This year, 63 donors helped Fur Kids Foundation raise nearly $18,000. We had four donors who pledged to match up to $4,300—two were anonymous, but we’d also like to publicly thank Felicia Jane Pilates and Forget Me Not Floral and Gift. The board is quite humbled by the swift action our supporters took to help us raise more. You are incredible.
As we mentioned on social media during WyoGives, the Hughes Charitable Foundation generously pledged to match every dollar raised online up to $1,000,000 during the 24-hour day of giving. We received nearly $4,000 from that match.
In the evening, Fur Kids Foundation joined 15 other Campbell County nonprofits to throw a Block Party celebrating the day of fundraising. This is where our community truly shined: you helped us raise more than $23.5 thousand that will be split between all 16 nonprofits. We are so blessed to be part of this wonderful community. These funds will be split among the following nonprofits:
We have some businesses to say thank you to for helping with the Block Party; they are:
This was such an amazing day. Thank you for supporting Fur Kids Foundation and other nonprofits around the state.
