Foundation Grant Funds

Endowment Fund

Our fully vested endowment fund is managed by the Montana Community Foundation (MCF).  Income from the endowment can be reinvested or used to support community initiatives.

Leadership Fund

The leadership fund supports initiatives benefiting the community. Donor contributions to the leadership fund are used by SVCF to make charitable grants to non-profit organizations.  Examples include:

  • Providing day use permits for Holland Lake free of charge for Valley Residents
  • Funding a Resource Specialist providing senior services to our aging Valley population

Donations to the Leadership Fund can be targeted by the donor for  a specific purpose or non-profit organization by the donor.

Community Support Fund

SVCF maintains a community support fund available for small grants supporting projects that benefit the community.  Any Swan Valley based non-profit organization can apply for these funds.

Community Support Fund grants range from $500 to $1,500.

Opportunity Grants

Opportunity Grants provide funds for non-profits that need additional or emergency funding to secure an “opportunity” or a project benefiting the Swan Valley.  Opportunity Grants range in size from $500 to $1500 and may be applied for at any time.

These funds are supported by Swan Valley residents as the SVCF seeks to provide a pool of resources for non-profits in our valley.
