Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #177024

Grant Description

Grants to Montana nonprofit organizations in eligible regions for programs that promote healthy social and emotional development for residents of all ages. Funding is intended for innovative and creative programs that benefit local children and families. Programs must benefit residents of Park and/or Gallatin Counties.

The Fund will only consider proposals from organizations that build on community assets and demonstrate the ability to foster community cooperation and collaboration. Nonprofit organizations focused on advocacy or policy changes are eligible to apply and must demonstrate how their activities hold promise for large-scale systemic change.

The 2023 priorities include:

  • Community Well-being: AMB West Philanthropies recognizes that to build a healthier and happier community, the Foundation must foster a thriving ecosystem of nonprofits. The Fund will support systemic initiatives that create a culture of well-being within non-profit organizations. The Fund strives to build upon community development that provides both proven and innovative pathways to create cultures of well-being within those vital organizations finding solutions, doing the work and saving lives. In addition to improving the internal health and well-being of nonprofit organizations, The Fund is especially interested in proposals that increase positive impacts within systems (may relate to systems change). The Fund requests systemic approaches to improve the health, well-being and culture for those engaged in the imperative work within its complex systems. Examples of approaches of interest to the Fund include but are not limited to systems such as education, food services, child welfare, family support, incarceration, law enforcement, healthcare, childcare, etc.
  • Nurturing Childhood: Early childhood is the foundation of the community’s future. To support preventative and upstream approaches, The Fund seeks organizations expanding access to quality childcare and early childhood experience that provide children — birth to five — with opportunities that will prepare them for successful lifelong development. The Fund is especially interested in projects that promote healthy parent-child relationships and connection to community resources as well as social and emotional skills among parents and children.
  • Thriving Youth: Thriving youth are energized about their future and have a sense of purpose. The Fund seeks creative nonprofit efforts to help youth discover and develop their talents, attributes and passions; connect to pathways and support networks to achieve their aspirations; and build life skills to reach independence and goals. To provide effective opportunities for youth, it is imperative that youth voice is incorporated in all aspects including planning, execution and evaluation. Proposals that engage and enable youth and their peers to be advocates for their own well-being and mental health as well foster a desire for informed civic engagement will receive preference.
