Hot Springs Greater Learning Foundation organized in the fall of 2002 to fill a growing void in the community – with fewer opportunities for arts and humanities programs and hands-on activities.
The organizing documents were filed with the Wyoming Secretary of State in February of 2003 and State of Wyoming incorporation status was received March 7, 2003. The Foundation is exempt from federal income tax as an organization described in the Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3). In March of 2006, the Foundation filed and qualified for exemption from Wyoming sales/use tax under W.S. 39-15-105 and 39-16-105, 1998.
The organization is governed by a board of directors. A director manages day-to-day operations. A volunteer education director works with the schools to coordinate programs and activities.
Monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month and are open to the public. For more information: email@example.com. We welcome participation and support.What We Believe
- We believe in people – that rural areas should have the opportunity for experiences that nurture inter-generational, life-long learning.
- We believe in service – creating partnerships that help us all achieve our goals — offering our hands in service to friends, neighbors and visitors.
- We believe in dreams – finding ways to develop strategies that enhance Big Horn Basin’s role in preserving, documenting and supporting who we are, what we do and where we live.
- We believe in work – to turn those dreams into a reality that makes a difference for our community, the region and the state.
