Youth Philanthropy Grant Program

Has once again recognized the Teton Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

Our Project: Grant Management Database

We are thrilled to partner once again with the amazing high school philanthropists at Teton High School. With the generous help of the Youth Philanthropy Grant program, we have hired a Grants Database Manager to help us respond to upcoming grant opportunities that fit our mission within a timely manner. This project will help us to become proactive to grant opportunities. We commend the student philanthropists for recognizing the importance of their generous gift in leveraging their funds to increase our development potential.

Thank You, Community Foundation of Teton Valley!

We were very successful at this year’s Teton Valley Community Foundation Challenger Fund Raising opportunity. Donations made to Teton Wildlife Rehabilitation Center through the 9th Annual Tin Cup Challenge were generously matched by the community through the Community Foundation’s efforts. We are grateful for this opportunity to reach out to the local community to raise awareness about the work we do and we are grateful that the Community Foundation includes us as a valuable community organization. Please join us in thanking the Community Foundation for caring deeply about our local nonprofit organizations!

Continuing Education for the Rehabilitation of Native Wildlife

In order to rehabilitate injured local wildlife for release back to the wild, staff members at the Teton Wildlife Rehabilitation Center are required to participate in continuing education units. These allow us to establish certification and obtain permits for wildlife rehabilitation. Our Program Director, Lindsay Jones, will study with the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council this summer to achieve certification and broaden our expertise. This project is being funded in part by a grant from the Community Foundation of Teton Valley’s Youth Philanthropy Grant program.
