Blaine County Community Foundation Fund

Grant cycle runs from September 1 - October 1

The Montana Community Foundation (MCF) announces a grant cycle to benefit communities and residents of Blaine County. Grants will be made from the Blaine County Community Foundation Fund, established at the Montana Community Foundation (MCF) by Warren Ross in 1997. Financial support for this grant program also comes from the Ross 87 Ranch Endowment Fund, established by Warren Ross as well. Grant applications will be accepted from September 1- October 1, 2021.

Applicants must be either a 501(c)(3) nonprofit or an exempt governmental unit. Grants will range in size from $500 to $2,000. While grants must be used for projects benefiting communities or residents in Blaine County, the grantee organization does not need to be based in Blaine County. Only one application is allowed per organization.

Eligible projects must provide a direct benefit to local residents, be sustainable, and address important, unmet needs. Ineligible projects include conferences, workshops, planning, research, untested projects, and partisan or sectarian activities.

Grant requests are reviewed by the Blaine County Community Grantmaking Committee. The grant process is competitive; incomplete applications will not be considered.
