How the Initiative is changing Wyoming

How We Got Started

The Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative was established in 2016 under the fiscal sponsorship of the Wyoming Community Foundation when there was a need for a statewide breast health organization. We received our own 501(c)3 status in 2019. Our granting goal is $75,000-$100,000 annually to Wyoming only breast health programs that match our mission.

Our Impact

In the past three years, the WBCI granted over $300,000 and into 41 programs in all Wyoming counties and funds a statewide early detection voucher program.

Our Mission

The WBCI aims to raise awareness and fund breast cancer programs in Wyoming with an emphasis on increasing breast health education, financially assisting breast cancer screenings, facilitating patient navigation, and promoting survivor services.  Through fundraising efforts across the state, proceeds remain in Wyoming to grant into eligible programs.

Operations and Grant Coordinator Wanted- WBCI is looking for a full-time Operations and Grant Coordinator to provide support for the daily operations of the organization.
