Grants of up to $2,500 to Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming nonprofit organizations and educational institutions to enhance environmental education and promote environmental stewardship. Applications are invited for projects in communities within the funding source’s service area.

Environmental education projects may include grants for specific teacher training, books or equipment for classroom use, field trips, or special project support in the natural or physical sciences.

Community environmental stewardship projects may include such things as nature trail development, wildlife area enhancement, recycling and community cleanup promotion, or the development of “living laboratories” for the use of students and the general public.

Grants are limited to a maximum of $2,500 for each successful applicant.

Funds will be made available only to institutions, organizations and programs recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as qualified recipients of contributions. Generally, contributions are restricted to organizations qualified as tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Consideration is only given to charitable institutions, organizations and programs within the geographic areas where Montana-Dakota conducts business. The company serves customers in 262 communities in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming.

Generally, no consideration will be given to private individuals, or to athletic, labor, fraternal, veterans, political, lobbying, social or religious organizations, or to regional or national organizations without local affiliation. Requests seeking endowment funds will receive low priority.

Applications must be received no later than October 1 of the year prior to the year for which funding is being sought.
