Grant Applications Due for Lincoln County Community Foundation

August 02, 2022

Funds are now available for 501 c3 non-profits in south Lincoln County.

The Lincoln County Community Foundation (LCCF) has been granting awards to non-profits in Lincoln County for the past 22 years. The foundation has awarded over $250,000 in that time, an amount larger than what is in the fund.

It has funded non-profits, which often have few volunteers and many needs with their mission.

To help those volunteers, often overworked, continue their tireless efforts on behalf of these organizations, LCCF offers grants.

The grant applications for the 2022 grant cycle will be accepted from Aug. 1, 2022 to Aug. 31, 2022.

You can find the application here

The application can be downloaded there. The hard copy application must be mailed and postmarked no later than Aug. 31, 2022, to LCCF at PO Box 490, Libby, MT 59923.

The 2021 grants in the amount of $10,600 were awarded to the following non-profits: City of Troy, U-SERVE Libby, Heritage Museum, Troy Chamber of Commerce, Troy Museum, Troy Farmers Market, Troy Public Schools, Kootenai Pets for Life, Lincoln County Library Foundation and Troy Public Schools Track Project.

In 2021, LCCF was given oversight of the Robert Pederson Endowment. The $1.3 million fund will be used to fund additional 501 c3 non-profit projects in the future.

The first proceeds were given to the Heritage Museum for their Roof. They received a $10,000 grant from the Robert Pederson Endowment. It was exactly what Pederson had in mind when he established his fund.

LCCF is always taking donations to its endowment. Endowed giving through LCCF is a permanent way to have your gift help your community.

For those who would like to give to help your community be a better placeto live consider a gift of some kind to the Lincoln County Community Foundation.
