The Hawthorn Foundation currently offers four programs designed to improve the lives of Wyoming residents:
- Scholarship Program to help individuals who have potential — as yet not fully realized because of a variety of life circumstances — to change their lives for the better through education or training.
- The Helping Hand to “Hired!” Fund to foster a healthy, self-sufficient population with a reduced reliance on public assistance by helping individuals acquire the tools for better employment.
- Conservation & Preservation focusing on the conservation of Wyoming spaces by protecting natural and scenic resources while at the same time preserving the historical and cultural aspects of our lands.
- Environmental Protection supporting broader conservation efforts through grants that encourage development of renewable energy sources and protection of air and water quality.
