Grants

To further our mission of encouraging communication, especially electronic, on issues, values and trends of importance to Montanans, GMF offers several types of grants:

General grants for nonprofits and others: for film, TV programs, documentaries, videos, webinars, etc. with applications due April 1.

Commercial broadcast stations: there is no application deadline for grants for programs featuring an urgent, critical issue with time-limited production. (Commercial stations may also apply for a General grant.)

Education Assistance Grants: for individual broadcast professionals and journalism students to strengthen their ability to report on economic and business issues.

Should you have any questions or concerns, you can always reach out to Sidney Armstrong, Executive Director of The Greater Montana Foundation, for assistance.

Education Grants

The Greater Montana Foundation is now offering new education assistance grants to individual Montana news media professionals and journalism students to strengthen their ability to report more effectively on issues of jobs and the economy. The $500 per person grants are for any course related to these issues, whether on-line or in-person, at any of the state’s post-secondary institutions.

General Grants

General grants are available for nonprofits and others: for film, TV programs, documentaries, videos, webinars, etc. with applications due annually on April 1 and awards made in June.

Commercial Grants

A major goal for GMF’s founder, Ed Craney was to improve commercial broadcasting in the state. There is no deadline for grant applications from commercial stations if you can demonstrate that this is an urgent and critical issue & production is time-limited
