Natrona Collective Health Trust provides a collaborative approach to health and wellbeing.
We strive to be a trusted resource for actionable change.
As Wyoming’s first health conversion foundation, we provide grant funding, technical assistance, and advocacy in partnership with Natrona County nonprofits. We use trust-based philanthropy and systems change advocacy to address the collective health challenges of our community, with our community.
By eliminating many of the burdens of traditional funding, we can more efficiently provide support to non-profits who are working to improve the many factors that impact the community’s collective health and mental wellbeing of young people.
Mental & behavioral health
Collective Health Trust is passionate about and actively working towards changing behavioral healthcare systems, especially for Natrona County youth, by fostering community conditions that allow for nonprofits and individuals that work on behavioral health to thrive.
