*NCHT staff take the following areas into consideration when determining grant amounts; grantee request amount, organizational budget, mission alignment, equity commitment, systems change work, service expansion, community need & evidence-based approaches.

Statement of Inclusiveness

The Board of Directors adopted this Statement of Inclusiveness to guide the foundation internally as an organization. Potential funded partners will need to have a similar statement and/or attest that their operations and programs are open to all, especially for the groups outlined below.

The mission of Natrona Collective Health Trust is to build the foundation for lifelong health among Natrona County community members by advancing the mental wellbeing of young people through trust-based philanthropy and systems change. NCHT’s operations reflect the belief that communities are enriched when people with different backgrounds and perspectives are active participants in decision-making processes. Thus, NCHT actively seeks to promote access and inclusivity and opposes discrimination based on race, creed, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and other factors that deny the essential humanity of all Natrona County residents

Nonprofit partners

Our financial resources allow Natrona County nonprofits to build the capacity needed to support community residents. Together we address health-related symptoms and improve systems to reduce the financial burden many nonprofits face.
