For the love of Park County, we inspire investment and leadership to cultivate resilient communities. 

We believe that Park County's challenges can be solved through mutual understanding, collaboration and a robust culture of philanthropy. 

The Park County Community Foundation awarded 28 grants totaling $350,000 during their 2024 giving cycle, including their largest ever single grant amount of $30,000 to Montana Freshwater Partners, according to a news release.

“This funding will support the expansion of our programming along the Upper Yellowstone River, providing education and outreach, on-the-ground habitat improvements, and flood-wise planning for our community,” confirmed Wendy Weaver, executive director of Montana Freshwater Partners.

Since 2007, the Park County Community Foundation has invested more than $1.6 million in direct funding to nonprofits. These grants focus on the five areas of concern identified through the We Will Park County citizen-informed initiative: Economic Performance; Health, Safety & Education; Housing & Affordability; Landscapes & Natural Amenities; and Small Town & Rural Lifestyle.
