Montana Community Foundation (MCF) and School Community Development Council (SCDC)
Grants of up to $3,000 to Montana nonprofit organizations, governmental units, and charitable entities for programs and projects that strengthen the rural community in the greater Powder River Area. Eligible applicant organizations are those that were founded with educational, charitable, and/or spiritual purposes in mind. Preference is given to projects that benefit a significant number of both young and elderly members of the community.
The Montana Community Foundation (MCF) has chosen to offer money in the form of matching funds to three communities across the state: the Great Powder River Area, Scobey (Daniels County), and Browning. The decisions on how to best use the money were left up to each recipient to support decision-making from the "grassroots" level.
One of the goals of the group that oversees the Powder River Community Endowment Fund is to maintain rural characteristics within the community while at the same time improving the local quality of life.
