Resident Matching Fund: 2019-2020


While The Center subsidizes rental expenses of the Theater, Lobby and Park, we know the cost can still be substantial. Recognizing this, The Center has sought out dedicated financial support to reduce costs of our venues to Center Residents. In 2019, a generous donor committed a lead gift to create the fund; additional funding in 2019-2020 is provided by the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund and other generous donors.

7/17/20 Update

During the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, we understand support to maintain programming initiatives on The Center Campus is more important than ever. That is why we have revised the grant guidelines to mobilize these funds as quickly as possible for all Center Resident organizations. If you have ideas for programs that can be safely executed in our venues over the months ahead, we want to work with you to make them possible.
