History of the Fund

In 2017, wildfires ravaged Montana, consuming more than 1.4 million acres across the state. The Montana Community Foundation responded by setting up what is now the Montana Disaster Recovery Fund, a nonpermanent fund at MCF, as a vehicle for charitable giving to support those affected by the fires. Since then, MCF has had an ongoing partnership with groups like the Montana Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) and Montana Disaster and Emergency Services and the fund continues to provide philanthropic support during Montana disasters.
