Center of Wonder is a 501(c)3 support organization for our arts and creative education community. We depend on the generosity of donors like you to help us fulfill that mission. Your tax-deductible donation will provide support to Artists-in-Residencies, Creative Education and strategic partnerships to further a collective cultural vision.
We believe encouraging the growth of transformative creative initiatives will have a positive impact on our whole community. We explore ways that Center of Wonder can provide support to arts and culture organizations and help to further their missions in a sustainable way.
Through a variety of grants and programs, we are able to support and enrich the arts and cultural offerings in Jackson Hole.
Center of Wonder Grants • Over $1 million has been awarded to artists and organizations, reaching thousands of community participants. Deeply involved in our creative investments, we meet regularly with our grantees.
Strategic Partnerships • We support creative leaders and organizations that have demonstrated success through programs of high artistic value, innovation and availability to the public.
Arts for All Grants • Support arts education, producing and presenting opportunities, and public projects with a strong community benefit. This fund is supported by social service tax dollars from the Town of Jackson and Teton County.
DailyWonder • We operate and curate the DailyWonder.org calendar that features listings for theater, dance, art openings, music, film, culinary events, speakers, workshops and classes for all ages.
Wildly Creative Arts Campaign • The Wildly Creative JH arts social media marketing campaign is a collaboration between Center of Wonder, the Center for the Arts, New Thought Digital, and the Jackson arts community. Funded by a grant from the JH Travel and Tourism Board, the campaign highlights Jackson’s creative individuals, organizations and businesses to raise awareness and elevate the reputation of Jackson Hole as a uniquely creative community and destination.
Live Performance Fund • The Fund helps to bridge the gap between classroom learning and the arts by underwriting student admission to performing arts events at the Center for the Arts. Classroom teachers often link the experience to their classroom curriculum, amplifying the opportunity. We partner with the Teton Education Foundation and Teton County School District.
Educator Awards • Outstanding Educator Awards recognize exceptional and inspiring teachers in Teton County. This is a student-driven award for the High School and Middle School.
