The Grand Encampment Opera House Has an Endowment Fund Established with the Wyoming Community Foundation.

The GEOH Endowment fund returns proceeds to the Town of Encampment to help cover the cost of Operations and Maintenance of the Grand Encampment Opera House. Since 2011 this fund has provided $18,270.17 in support of the Grand Encampment Opera House.

The initial endowment fund was established in partnership with the Gretchen Swanson Family Foundation, the Storer Foundation and the Gates Frontiers Foundation through a funding challenge.

Your planned gift to this fund will help continue to ensure the facility is available at little or no cost to our area organizations.
