The University of Wyoming has received an additional gift of $300,000 from the John P Ellbogen Foundation to support civics education, enhancing the John P. Ellbogen Civics Education Fund beyond $1.5 million,

To ensure the future of civics education programming for Wyoming students, $50,000 will be available immediately.

In an effort to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for competent and responsible participation in the American political system, the John P. Ellbogen Foundation, Wyoming We the People program, and UW’s American Heritage Center have partnered to promote civics education across the state.

The John P. Ellbogen Civics Education Fund will provide Wyoming We the People program with financial support to continue important statewide education for Wyoming students and offer impactful professional development for Wyoming’s teachers.

The We the People program was created to commemorate the framing and adoption of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The program represents the joint effort of a nationwide network of educators and school leaders.
