LCF+ Incentive Program


In January 2024, the Montana Community Foundation (MCF) is launching an incentive program to encourage Local Community Foundations (LCFs) to grow their unrestricted endowed assets. The LCF+ Incentive Program will allow LCFs to invest additional funds within their communities to make an impact now and in the future. Over the course of the LCF+ Incentive Program, MCF will distribute over $1 million to LCFs across Montana.

Eligible LCFs:

LCFs that have 100% of their endowed assets with MCF are eligible for the LCF+ Incentive Program. This includes LCF Affiliates that are under MCF’s 501(c)(3) status and LCFs that are not. In addition, this includes LCFs that are established during the incentive period.
