Darby Town Endowment Fund

Apply now for grants to benefit the Darby community!

The Montana Community Foundation's annual grant cycle to benefit the community and residents of Darby, Montana is now open. Grants will be made from the Darby Town Endowment Fund, established at MCF by Richard and Barbara Ackerman in 1999 and enhanced through generous contributions from community members.

Apply online from February 1, 2021- March 5, 2021.

Applicants must be either a 501(c)(3) nonprofit or an exempt governmental unit. Grants will be up to $4,000. While grants must be used for projects benefiting the Darby community and residents, the grantee organization does not need to be based in Darby. Only one application is allowed per organization.

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

Grant requests are reviewed by the Darby Town Endowment Fund Committee. The grant process is competitive; incomplete applications will not be considered.

To apply for a grant, access the online application at mtcf.org/grants, starting February 1. Only online applications will be accepted. For questions, please contact MCF Director of Operations & Grants, Jessica Stewart-Kuntz, at (406) 441-4950 or jessica@mtcf.org.
