Community Grants Gives $9,000

Each year the Foundation provides grant funding to a diverse range of projects and programs that benefit our community. This year we funded 15 projects for a total of $9,000. Proposals come from organizations and community groups and the partially or unfunded applications from the Pro Cut Green Fund and the Rotary Club Youth Grants.

We look forward to continued partnerships and opportunities to support the positive work being done in our community.

Meet Stephen!

Hello all! My name is Stephen Kalb-Koenigsfeld and I’m the new Nonprofit Program Director here at the Foundation. My wife and I moved here in early July from Big Timber, and before that, central Iowa. After more than six years as a journalist, I’m looking forward to getting to work more closely with non-profit organizations and helping better our community!

There are many ways to give! Donate to your favorite of the 61 charities through the Fun Run and make more of your donation when they receive a match. You can give to the Sally Martin Match Fund to benefit all charities, or you can go to Junction 7 who is donating 10% of all print sales to the Sally Martin Match Fund. You can donate online, in person at 122 S Hauser, or by mail at PO Box 1871 Red Lodge MT 59068.
