Do you have a new non-profit?

Are you waiting for your 501 (c)(3) designation?

Do you need to raise funds but don't have the
staff or time to process donations or tax receipts?

As a fiscal sponsor, we can act as a 501 (c)(3) on your behalf to:

  • Receive grants and other revenue on your behalf.
  • Disburse funds and make grant payments to you, the sponsored organization.
  • Send receipts to donors on your behalf.
  • Provide financial reports on your project.

Need help finding grants?
We want to help our grantees and partners find the funding you need for programs and projects. That’s why we’ve partnered with GrantStation , an online tool that helps you identify, track, and apply to potential funding sources.

Annual subscriptions are normally $699. However, through our partnership with GrantStation, we can offer your organization a discounted annual membership for only $75 , a $624 savings!

This membership gives you access to  member benefits  that provide the tools for you to (1) find new grant sources, (2) build a strong grant-seeking program, and (3) write winning grant proposals.  Click here  to watch a full tour of the benefits.

To receive this discounted membership, visit our grant portal and fill out a brief four question application.

Thanks to the diligent efforts of author Kate Hampton and photographer Tom Ferris, our book about Montana's Carnegie Libraries is currently with the copy-editor and designer.

It will be available to the public early fall 2019.
In honor of National Women's History Month in March, we want to highlight  Born Under a Bad Sign – the Story of Women in Montana’s First Prison , a documentary film currently in production by Moving Pictures Productions, a 2018 MHF grantee.
Come join us!
We'd love to catch up with you at one of our upcoming events .
