As a private foundation, GMF targets a minimum amount for grants and grant-related expenses prior to year end. Currently, there is a little of over $41,000 still available for granting.
Reflecting Greater Montana Foundation founder Ed Craney's goal to improve commercial broadcasting, GMF offers "no deadline" grants to Montana's commercial broadcast stations for programs addressing an urgent and critical issue (including the top priorities identified as most important by Montanans in the GMF media surveys: jobs and the economy; healthcare; and education) whose production is time-limited.
See directions on filling out a grant and the application form here.
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 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.
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
