Grants & Scholarships

In partnership with our generous donors, the Montana Community Foundation has helped our communities flourish through grants and scholarships.

GraduateSince our founding in 1988, we have reinvested more than $68 million in Montana through grants, scholarships and operations. In just the last 10 years, we have awarded more than $31 million to nonprofit organizations and charitable causes throughout the state. For the 2018-19 academic year, we awarded more than $430,000 in scholarships to help Montana students achieve their dreams. 


If you are a Montana nonprofit organization and are interested in our competitive grant opportunities, please visit our grants page to learn more about availability and the application process. We can also help provide information about grants your organization may be eligible for offered through one of our many charitable funds. Please note MCF does not accept and will not review unsolicited grant applications or requests.
