Each year the Foundation provides grant funding to a diverse range of projects and programs that benefit our community. Proposals come for organizations and community groups and the partially or unfunded applications from the Pro Cut Green Fund and the Rotary Club Youth Grants.

This year, we received eight applications seeking more than $8,000 in funding. We were able to fund six of those eight proposals for more than $6,500. The recipients include:
  • Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Foundation
  • Carbon County Historical Society & Museum
  • Hero’s STEAM Center
  • Mountain Bluebells Preschool & Nursery
  • Red Lodge Carnegie Library
  • Red Lodge Farmers Market

Theresa Whistler of Hero’s STEAM Center had this to say about their grant award:

“That is awesome! I never imagined that in my wildest dreams.  It’s wonderful because you have these dreams and ideas, but you don’t know how you’re going to make it work. The Community Grantmaking application was the first place to announce what we wanted to do, and with funding through this program, you have shown us the support. It makes it happen and gives this thing the fuel to get going.”
