About Gracie's Promise
       Gracie's Promise is a Wyoming 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to "give financial assistance to families with children, under 18 years of age, battling catastrophic medical circumstances."

        In rural regions, families often must travel long distances for multiple treatments at large urban hospitals for care following diagnosis of severe illness or disabling accidents.  This places extreme negative stress on work schedules, finances, and the emotional and spiritual well-being of the entire family.
        Gracie's Promise was created in 2009 when a "need and a seed" were presented.  The need - Gracie Claborn was 11 months old when diagnosed with a lung tumor and leukemia.  Her family were members of All Saints Episcopal Church in Torrington, WY.  The seed - The Foundation for the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming provided "Mustard Seed" monies to state wide churches with the intent for the congregation to reach out into their communities and grow their "Mustard See" money in a way that would benefit the local community and beyond.

          Through initial church foundation funding, volunteers handing out information at various events, and multiple fundraisers, Gracie's Promise has been expanding.  As of 2018, over 70 families from various states have become part of our family. 

          When a completed application is received, it will be reviewed by the Gracie's Promise board members.  If approved, the family will receive funding to help offset the many expenses incurred during the child's critical period.  The organization continues to be supported by volunteers allowing all funding to help our families.          

Information on how to apply for assistance or help support families is located elsewhere on the website.
