“It is with great excitement that we announce that we have successfully met our fundraising goal in the $100,000 Carole and Jack Nunn Challenge Grant,” said One22 Executive Director Sharel Lund Love.  Funding from the Nunn’s, and all those who contributed to the challenge, has been critical to One22’s ability to offer year round support to neighbors who need assistance when facing health, financial, and cultural challenges. “Need knows no season, and many people look to us for help getting through the spring season due to seasonal layoffs, reduced hours at work, increased cold and flu, worry about summer child care, and increasing cultural stress, among other things,” said Love. Historically, she continued, springtime and early summer is a slow time of year for the donations One22 relies on.

The Carole and Jack Nunn Challenge Grant was announced in May, and called on the community to come together to support One22’s new strategic vision of one thriving and diverse Greater Teton Community, with services including emergency financial assistance, community education, language access (interpretation), and immigrant services.

“Carole and Jack understand One22’s service to the community often moves at a pace which is out of sync with a traditional Jackson Hole donor schedule,” said One22 Board Chair Molly Kelly. “That’s why we’re especially grateful for their philanthropic leadership this spring. The Nunn’s know our clients’ needs as well as our organization’s.”

Old Bill’s Fun Run remains One22’s most important fundraiser, like many organizations in Jackson Hole. “In the run up to Old Bill’s Fun Run, we are so pleased to have been able to strengthen our organization and pursue our strategic goals in order to help keep local families healthy and whole,” said Kelly.

“Despite the beauty of our valley, economic and cultural challenges are very real for many of neighbors. In times of crisis, One22 is often the safety net when all else fails,” said Sharel Lund Love, Executive Director. “Thanks to the generosity of the Nunn family, One22 is stronger than ever in providing the resources necessary to support our neighbors facing these barriers.”

All donations made to One22 through June 30th will go towards the Carole & Jack Nunn Challenge Grant and One22’s goal of raising $100,000 in matching funds to help support families whose well-being is in jeopardy.
