2023 Spring Grants Awarded
In accordance with its mission, the Spanish Peaks Community Foundation (SPCF) strives to make a positive impact on those who live and/or work in Big Sky. Therefore, when SPCF evaluates grant requests, it considers, and gives preference to, applications for local organizations and projects that deliver direct community services, educational support, affordable access to outdoor resources and recreation, and cultural opportunities that enrich the Big Sky community.
This spring SPCF received 26 grant applications with a total of $416,712 requested. This was SPCF’s largest grant cycle to date, as the Board awarded $353,262 to 22 different organizations. SPCF is planning to award approximately $800,000 in grants to local nonprofits in 2023 – our best year yet!
SPCF’s increased capacity to support the community directly reflects the generosity and compassion of the Spanish Peaks Mountain Club members and the Black Diamond Giving Program.
