The Wood River Women’s Foundation will donate more than $300,000 to 17 local non-profits in 2020, the organization announced. Top recipients include the Ketchum Community Development Corporation’ Sustainability Advisory Committee, which received $75,000, as well as NAMI-Wood River Valley, St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center’s Trauma Prevention Program, and the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation’s Compassionate Care Program, which were awarded $25,000 each. Every year, the Foundation awards grants based on a specific description of needs. This year, though, the organization has waived any restrictions on the use of this year’s grants in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The change was designed to allow for more flexibility, according to a joint statement issued by grants committee co-chairs Gina Wolcott, Patti Zebrowski, and Julie Brewer.
