Apply for a Community Grant

The Park County Community Foundation awards annual grants to nonprofit and local government entities serving people living or working in Park County, Montana.

We offer two types of community grant opportunities. Please select from the options below for eligibility information. 

Our 2021 annual cycle concluded in May, and we awarded $150,000 to 24 programs. As was first introduced during our 2020 grant cycle, these funding decisions were based on the following guidelines:

  • Funding will be focused on the community issues identified in the We Will visioning process.
  • Neither of our grant programs include a funding cap, towards the goal of distributing our funds in a way that will provide the greatest impact.
    • In 2021, with $150,000 to invest, we funded 24 projects, with an average grant amount of $6,250. The top grants awarded were for $10,000 each; 29% of grants were in the range of $9,000 - $10,000 and 46% of all grants were $6,000 or above.
    • In 2020, with $100,000 to invest, we funded 17 projects, with an average grant amount of $5,800. The top grant awarded was $15,000; 25% of grants were in the range of $9,000 - $15,000.

Access to the online grants application portal for the 2022 funding cycle will become available in January of 2022.

Community Grants - Support for community projects or general operating support. 
Collaborative Grants - Support for two or more nonprofit organizations applying for a common-purpose program or project.
