The Montana Community Foundation (MCF) announces the opening of a grant cycle to benefit projects promoting social justice in Montana. Grants will be made from the Social Justice Montana Fund, established at MCF in 1997 with a challenge grant from the Otto Bremer Foundation that was matched by donations from Montanans across the state.

Applicants must be either a 501(c)(3) nonprofit or an exempt governmental unit. Grants will range in size from $1,000 to $5,000. Only one application is allowed per organization.

Successful grantees will have the following characteristics:

• Promote social justice in Montana.

• Work to understand and address the root causes of the issues, not just the symptoms.

• Sees itself as part of a larger movement for social change, and works towards strengthening that movement.

• Preference will be given to projects that engage Montana’s youth in the work of social justice.

Eligible projects must provide a direct benefit to Montana residents, be sustainable, and address important, unmet needs. Ineligible projects include partisan or sectarian activities.

Grant requests are reviewed by the MCF Grants & Scholarships Committee. The grant process is competitive; incomplete applications will not be considered. Grant applications will be accepted Aug. 7 – Sept. 8, 2017.
