Flashback to the 1960's

Shelby Wetzel, Stefani Hicswa, and Megan Nickles

NWC Foundation Board President Megan Nickles, Executive Director Shelby Wetzel and I wore pink retro outfits to celebrate the Foundation’s founding in 1966 at a dinner Ms. Nickles hosted in her backyard for Foundation Board members and spouses last week. Guests enjoyed some fun facts honoring 50 years of history, including:

  • The Foundation was incorporated with the State of Wyoming on June 2, 1966.  Its first meeting ran from May 19 to June 13 (they recessed and re-opened the meeting on different days)
  • Six different donors have made gifts of $1 million or more to the Foundation
  • We have received gifts from all 50 states and 14 foreign countries
  • Employee giving to the Foundation totals $1,082,908 from 331 individuals.

Look for more Foundation trivia and retro photos throughout the year as we celebrate the Foundation's 50th anniversary.
