Central Montana Foundation is the oldest community foundation in Montana! Organized by a group of visionary businessmen in 1984, the Foundation offers area residents a chance to give back to the Central Montana community of which they have been a part.
Our Mission: To receive and accept property exclusively for educational, cultural, charitable or benevolent purposes for the benefit, health and improvement of residents of the Central Montana area is such a way that the quality of life in Central Montana shall be enhanced, working alone and with any and all other persons and organizations doing similar work.
By working through the Foundation, worthy projects are able to provide donors with a tax deductible avenue for donations.
Endowments and pass-through funds provide support exclusively to projects within the Central Montana area. The communities supported by the Foundation include Lewistown, Grass Range, Denton, Hobson, Judith Basin (Hobson and Stanford), Judith Gap, Moore, Roy, Winifred, Petroleum County (Winnett), Wheatland County (Harlowton), and Garfield County (Jordan).
(See the list of Community Endowments and giving form here.)
Central Montana Foundation Board of Directors meet every 4th Tuesday of the month to consider grant requests under $5,000. Major grants ($5,000+) are considered on the 4th Tuesday of May at the annual meeting.
