The Buffalo Bill Center of the West is launching a pilot program offering free admission for Park County, Wyoming, youth through high school, beginning September 1, 2022. The program will provide an enjoyable museum experience and learning opportunity for young audiences in the region, free of charge.
The program is funded for one year, and one accompanying adult will also receive free admission to chaperone the child or children.
This pilot program has been generously funded by gifts from donors and friends of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. During the annual WYOGIVES campaign, their gifts were matched with donations from The Homestead Foundation/John and Meredith Sullivan, the Thomas & Elizabeth Grainger Family Charitable Fund, and the Hughes Charitable Foundation.
WYOGIVES is an annual, special day of giving and community for non-profits across Wyoming. This year it took place on July 13, midnight to midnight, when donors visiting the WYOGIVES website contributed to 256 participating nonprofits across Wyoming. The Center of the West had a goal of $50,000 to make this exciting program a reality, and exceeded it by raising more than $54,000 from a total of 88 donors.
