Apply for a Grant

In accordance with its mission, SPCF strives to make a positive impact within our own Big Sky Community. Therefore, when we evaluate grant requests, we consider, and give preference to, applications for projects that:

  • Benefit educational, environmental and community service initiatives.
  • Benefit the arts.
  • Have an impact on a significant portion of the Big Sky community. (The more individuals affected by the project, the better!)
  • Take place within the greater Big Sky area.

April 1st deadline for May 1st grant consideration. October 1st deadline for November 1st grant consideration. Evaluations for previously awarded grants must be received before new grant proposals will be considered.
