Paying it Forward

Welcome to The McMurry Foundation, a beacon of hope and support for the vibrant communities Wyoming and Natrona County. Since its establishment in 1998 by Mick and Susie McMurry, our foundation has been dedicated to making a lasting and positive impact on the lives of those who need it most. With unwavering commitment and a deep sense of community, we strive to empower, uplift, and enrich through a wide range of charitable endeavors. Join us in our mission to create a brighter future for our beloved community by paying it forward.

How we help

The McMurry Foundation primarily supports Natrona County non-profits. All organizations must be organizations with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status. Below is a list of our funding priorities.


We support educational programs as a means to address the long-term well-being of the community.


We support activities that further the religious aspects of our society.

Arts & Humanity

We seek to enhance the quality of life through arts and humanities programs.

Children & Child Advocacy

We believe all children need to be exposed to a variety of social, cultural, intellectual and recreational experiences to help them develop their identities. We invest in programs that focus on mentoring, developing leadership skills, encouraging community service and building self-esteem.

Favorable Business Environment

We invest in organizations and projects that strive to enhance the dignity and economic independence of individuals, their families and their communities by supporting a variety of community and economic development strategies.

Health & Human Services

We seek to create opportunities for all individuals to reach their full potential by supporting programs that relieve suffering and improve living conditions of individuals and families facing transition and crisis. Priorities of the Foundation in this area are programs that address the causes or prevention of social and economic issues and provide basic human, social and physical services.

The McMurry Foundation will not make contributions to:

  • Organizations whose primary purpose is to influence legislation
  • Political causes, candidates, organizations or campaigns
  • Individuals

“We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.”
