Do you have a community project that could benefit from additional cash? The Community Foundation is accepting request for proposals for the Community Grant Making Program. Each year the Foundation offers small, one-year grants to Carbon County nonprofits. These grant making funds are generated by earnings from our permanent endowment and our special Donor Advised Fund, Imagine If…
Grants must meet a specific need or serve a purpose in one or more of the following categories: arts and culture, education, the environment, health, and social services. Nonprofits and grass root projects may apply for grant awards up to $1,000. Grant monies must be spent for the stated need or purpose, shall not become part of a recipient’s endowment fund or general operating fund, and are not transferable.
Last year, the Foundation awarded grants to Beartooth Backcountry Horsemen, Carbon County Arts Guild & Depot Gallery, Red Lodge Area Food Partnership, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Kids Corner, Beartooth Little League, Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary, Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Foundation, Beartooth Recreational Trails Association, Red Lodge Proud & Beautiful, and Red Lodge Lions Club. These grants funded projects ranging from trail building, outfield improvements, and community gardens to Shakespeare in the Park and the Montana Wounded Warrior Project.
