Deadline to apply for wildfire relief grants is Dec. 11

Print Article

The Montana Community Foundation announced Nov. 6 the second grant cycle for the Montana Wildfire Relief Fund.

The fund was launched in September through a partnership between the Foundation and the Montana Television Network, a news release states. Since then it has grown to more than $500,000 through donations from across the country.

The fund stipulates “that applicants must be either a 501c3 nonprofit, an exempt governmental unit or, if neither, provide a fiscal sponsorship agreement with an organization who is a 501c3 or exempt governmental unit,” the news release states.

Only one application is allowed per organization, and the maximum grant amount is $15,000.

According to the news release, “preference will be given to organizations that provide(d) direct relief to individuals affected by the wildfires in Montana in 2017, provide a direct benefit to Montana residents, (and that) do not support projects, programs or activities that are partisan or sectarian.”

The deadline for applying is Dec. 11. Online applications are preferred and can be accessed online at mtcf.org/grants.
