The High Mountain Hay Fever Children’s Health Fund was established by a gift from the HMF Bluegrass Festival Association to address and improve children’s health in Custer County. It is administered by the Wet Mountain Community Foundation.


The Children’s Health Fund was initiated in 2015 through an initial donation by the High Mountain Hay Fever Bluegrass Festival Association and is held as an advised fund through the management of the Wet Mountain Valley Community Foundation.  Funding is designated for children’s health projects and programs addressing physical, emotional, social, and educational health.  A grant application process is in place for funding opportunities for local governmental agencies and nonprofit organizations.  The Fund continues through support of the Bluegrass Association as well as private donations, and donations through the Spirit Campaign.   Over the past four years, over $99,000 has been awarded to local agencies and nonprofits for children’s programs.
