Organizations serving youth, seniors, and the homeless are among the recipients of $1,510,350 in grants to Wyoming nonprofits announced this week by the Daniels Fund.

Fremont County grant recipients include: Dubois Youth Activities, after-school and entrepreneur programs; Fathers in the Field of Lander, statewide principled character and leadership programs; and Help For Health Transitions Program of Riverton.

"These organizations set a high standard for excellence in serving the people of Wyoming," said Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund. "We are honored to support their efforts to make life better in communities across the state."

The Daniels Fund will award a projected $3.3 million in grants to Wyoming nonprofits in 2012. Funding areas include: aging, alcoholism and substance abuse, amateur sports, disabilities, early childhood education, K-12 education reform, ethics and integrity in education, homeless and disadvantaged and youth development.

Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television who launched his first system in Casper, established the Daniels Fund to operate the Daniels Fund Scholarship Program and the Daniels Fund Grants Program in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
