What funds are available?
The money raised through Papoose Club events and fundraisers is donated back to the community– specifically to support cultural, social, educational and athletic activities for the children of the Wood River Valley.
How does it work?
Each month at its membership meetings, the Club will consider requests from various organizations that are in need of financial support.
Here are the steps to be considered:
Organization fills out and submits a request.
Club considers request; organization is put on meeting agenda
Organization makes brief presentation at meeting
Club informs organization whether request has been granted
The mission of Papoose Club is to promote and assist cultural, social, educational and athletic activities for the children of the Wood River Valley, and to raise money to further these purposes. The Club may also donate money to other causes that satisfy the goals of its mission.
Funds can be used for direct program expenses, scholarships or events;
Our most common grant amount is $1,000, with some grants reaching $2,000;
Funds must directly benefit youth of the Wood River Valley;
Funds cannot be used for administrative or operating costs (i.e. salaries, insurance, or day-to-day expenses);
Requests that benefit a larger number of children are favored over those that benefit only a few.
Please only submit complete requests, and include all the required information.
After you submit your request
Requests are added to the agenda in the order they are received; please submit your request well before funds are needed.
After you submit the form, if you do not receive a reply within one week, please contact us to confirm that the form was received.
If you have questions about Papoose Club’s fund request process, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to hearing from you!
To support educational, cultural, and athletic growth for children of the Wood River Valley
