One22 gets $750K in funding
One22 has secured $750,000 of funding for the next three years, stemming from a Nunn and Friends Challenge that asked the nonprofit to raise $125,000 in three annual pledges for three $125,000 matches.
The challenge started with a core group of 10 — Carole and Jack Nunn, Jan and Bob Hartman, Margot Snowdon and Yves Desgouttes, Patty and Dick Jaquith, and Gloria and Bill Newton — who together offered to pay $125,000 a year for three years should a $125,000 annual gift be secured for three years.
Eighteen donors agreed to the pledge, helping the nonprofit — which is now going by One22 Resource Center — secure the sizable matches.

Habitat needs new director
Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area is looking for a new executive director as Kendra Heimbuck plans to leave the position in August.
Heimbuck has led the housing nonprofit since May 2016. She said she is leaving Jackson because her husband has taken a job as a pastor in Sheridan.
During her tenure with Habitat, Heimbuck has overseen progress at The Grove affordable housing development on Snow King Avenue. The complex is Teton Habitat’s largest project ever, with 24 units when it’s completed.
