Montana Wildfire Relief Fund Grants


The 2017 Montana wildfires claimed two lives and more than 1.2 million acres.

The Montana Wildfire Relief Fund (MWRF), was a fund established at the Montana Community Foundation to respond to the unprecedented 2017 Montana wildfire season. More than $600,000 was distributed to 81 organizations across the state in two grant cycles. The fund has been renamed the Montana Disaster Relief Fund and is used to support relief for disasters in Montana of all kinds.
