Arts and cultural organizations play an essential role in maintaining healthy and resilient communities. To support their vital work, the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation is donating more than $246,000 in new grant funding across the three states it serves.

The grants will help fund projects ranging from traveling music and theater programming in schools to museum access for students, and from Asian and Native cultural events to free music events for communities.

"These groups foster creative expression, inspire young minds, nurture well-being, and help us look at the world in new ways," said Sharon Fain, Rocky Mountain Power vice president, Wyoming. "We’re honored to support the incredible work they are doing."

This recent round of grants focused on art and culture is one of the foundation's four annual grant cycles.

The following nine grants totaling $32,500 were given to local organizations supporting communities in western Wyoming:

Actors’ Mission for the renovation of the community theater building which provides free plays and meals for all community members.
