“The number of stories I’ve heard about projects that came out of that day, new friendships that were formed and ‘big magic’ that occurred has been awesome in the true sense of the word — I am in awe.”
– Kristen Czaban, Publisher, The Sheridan Press
Leap Into Leadership Conference sponsorship
“Brining Cokie Roberts to Wyoming was phenomenal. Mickey and the Equipoise Fund provided great support through grants and generously sponsored several Wyoming women to attend the workshops and dinner through scholarships. We are thrilled to have them as a partner and friend in bringing quality programs to women.”
– Representative Sue Wilson, Leadership Board Member, Wyoming Women’s Legislative Caucus
Seed funding for the Wyoming based project
“The Equipoise Fund’s grant served as the catalyst for me to apply for additional funding through a myriad of granting sources. Lady Macbeth is a story yearning to be made in Wyoming. It will be, with gratitude to Mickey’s initial vote of confidence.
– Erin Roy, Founder, Roy Productions
Seed funding to encourage women to run for office. Fiscally sponsored by GAP!
“One of the most important pieces of Courage to Run is the camaraderie it encourages, and the support it offers women running for office. The 2019 event felt truly special and we hope it encourages more women to dip their toes into politics at the local, state and national level.”
– Seadar Rose Davis, Co-Captain
“The Equipoise Fund fully realizes its mission to enhance the vision, voice and visibility of women and girls. I can attest to this first hand as a grant recipient, Wyoming woman, artist and storyteller using my voice to amplify the spirit, strength and power of Wyoming women and girls today. As an organization, The Equipoise Fund has encouraged and empowered me to move forward and create my dream, Women in Wyoming.”
– Lindsay Linton Buk, Project Director, Photographer & Podcast Host
“I loved community of women who put on Connect2Women, presented, and attended. It’s really the women coming together that makes this conference so amazing! “
– Participant, Connect2Women Conference
“Women build is a day to celebrate and empower women on the build site. While women come out to volunteer on a weekly basis, work in construction leadership positions within Habitat, purchase Habitat homes, and support this great work – we like to take one day out of the year to truly recognize the role women play in creating affordable housing opportunities in our community and empower women to build! This would not have been possible without our sponsors.”
– Elizabeth Ferguson, Outreach Coordinator
Program Sessions Support
“In these sessions, girls become self aware, practice positive communication skills, lift each other other up, learn about self care, how to navigate drama, and become brave over perfect.”
– Elly Garrett, GAP!’s Executive Director
Composed “Cirlcle of Light”
“Composers are so often working in their own heads, but with the commission from Equipoise, I was able to work with conductor Holly Dalrymple and the fantastic University of Wyoming students in the Bel Canto Chorus in a truly collaborative way. I gave them drafts, they worked on them returned them with suggestions. We went back and forth until it was finished. Talk about impact – all those young women learning their voices matter, their teachers matter, and art is best when collaborative.”
– Anne Guzzo, Conductor
Performed “Circle of Light”
“This financial assistance allowed the women of Bel Canto Women’s Chorus to fully participate in a most important event recognizing the 150th anniversary of Wyoming suffrage. Afterward, as we discussed their experience, they were so honored and proud to have represented the university. They felt the gravity of the event, and after viewing the documentary, had a more complete understanding of women’s suffrage and the work that’s gone before. We are very grateful!”
– Holly Dalrymple, Conductor
2019 Annual Conference sponsorship
“Exploring the theme of ‘The Power of Connection,’ keynote speaker Jensine Larsen touched on the extraordinary power of connecting women globally to make significant changes in social, political, environmental and health sectors. As women rise, their communities rise with them.
The Women in Leadership Summit is an annual public Jackson Hole-based event that supports networking, empowerment, and skill building for women in the greater Jackson Hole area.
The full day summit sold out with 135 participants attending the keynote, a catered lunch and three afternoon workshops. Thanks to sponsorship donations, we were also able to offer complimentary keynote seats to over 50 high school students.”
