The WRWF invests in our community making a difference in health and well-being of people who live here.  We support the growth and development of nonprofits in the Wood River Valley by partnering with them on projects that strengthen their services, extend their outreach, and contribute to the quality of life in the valley.  By assigning Impact Teams to current grantees, we seek to develop a collaborative relationship with each one.


Impact Teams are assigned to support each year’s grantees..  Each team works with one nonprofit over the course of the grant year, they:

  • Learn about the non-profits’ work by attending the nonprofits’ activities as appropriate
  • Make midyear site visits to discuss progress of the projects
  • Hold an end-of-year debriefing with grantees to identify the effectiveness of projects and the community impact
