Wyoming may be a big state, but we have a tight-knit community. WyoGives Day is tomorrow and provides the opportunity to “Live Here, Give Here,” as the event’s tagline encourages.

The previous three years have proven how our small cities and towns have shown up for the collective good, raising over $6 million for nonprofits around the state. For the 4th annual WyoGives Day commencing Wednesday, July 12 at midnight, the Wyoming Nonprofit Network hopes for an even more eventful 24 hours. 

There will be a real-time live count display of donation dollars and the total number of donors on the WyoGives website. A $1 million match will be provided by the Hughes Charitable Foundation and a $75,000 match by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming. 

There are plenty of options for spreading generosity, with over 300 nonprofits participating. Each nonprofit has its own profile page on the WyoGives website, and donors can also search by cause, location, or name. Donors can give to several organizations in a single transaction as well. 

The categories include health, education, disability services, animals, poverty, social justice, veterans, hunger, homelessness, substance abuse prevention, art, culture, etc. Laramie alone has over 20 nonprofits to choose from. 

Last year, 256 nonprofits received support from 5,773 donors. Almost half of those donors were new. The first WyoGives Day in 2020 raised $571,000; in 2021, $2.3 million, and last year saw $3.2 million raised in just 24 hours. 

Participate in WyoGives Day by donating or watching the display as the state unites for the collective giving good.
