The charitable organization dedicates $100,000 to early-childhood education

The Wood River Women’s Foundation, a collective of philanthropic individuals, earlier this month voted to provide grants to 16 Idaho nonprofit organizations that serve the Wood River Valley.

The 2022 grants total a record-high $348,000, topping the previous year’s total by $38,000. Since its founding in 2005, the organization has awarded 183 pooled grants surpassing $3 million to nonprofit groups in the Wood River Valley.

“To our delight, 2022 proved to be a record-breaking funding year for WRWF,” said foundation President Terri Bullock. “We are honored to collectively support those doing the work to deliver services throughout our community, especially in a difficult, pandemic-driven environment.”
