The Missoula Community Foundation is committed to strengthening the capacity of our nonprofit sector and investing in young leaders. Since 2001, we have awarded over $1.5 million in grants and scholarships to nonprofits and students in our community.


One of the ways we carry out our mission of enhancing community vitality is by investing in the vision, passion, and expertise of local nonprofits. We manage multiple funds for a variety of needs, please visit our ‘apply for funding’ page to learn more.
