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 501c3 status in 2019. Our granting goal is $75k-$100k annually to Wyoming only breast health programs that match our mission.
Since inception, WBCI has granted more than $350,000 into 58 projects and a breast cancer screening and early detection program available in every county across Wyoming. Check out our annual report to see the impact across the state.
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.
