About Us

The Foundation was created in the fall of 2000, incorporated to manage funds generated by the sale of Wyoming Hydro-Electric Commission to Hydro-One Inc., and to use the revenue generated by such funds for the benefit of the residents of the former Village of Wyoming. Following the sale of the Village Hydro utility, a portion of the funds was used to build a new Wyoming Fire Hall on Main Street in Wyoming, and the balance invested with the incorporation of the Wyoming Community Foundation.

Since its inception in late 2000, the Foundation has donated a just over $500,000 to the community in response to requests submitted for various projects from year to year. (list of groups receiving donations listed under Groups Supported)

The Foundation meets on an as needed basis (2 to 3 times a year) and holds an annual Public Meeting in December each year. The Board is composed of five members, all volunteers, each of whom serve three year terms.
