About Us

Grant Program

Since its inception in 1999, the Women's Foundation of Montana has provided more than $500,000 in grants to more than 30 organizations that share its mission to enhance economic self-sufficiency for women and a brighter future for girls.

WFM grants have funded a wide range of projects and programs, including financial literacy programs for women, revolving loan programs for new women-owned businesses, career planning for female high school students, computer and robotics workshops for girls, vocational job training for women and more.

The goals of the Women's Foundation grant program are to:

  • Fund programs to build economic self-sufficiency for women and help girls to be economically self-sufficient in adulthood.

  • Provide operating support to organizations creating a systemic change that will increase opportunities for economic self-sufficiency for women and girls.

  • Promote awareness of the issues affecting economic self-sufficiency for women and girls and build support for systemic change to enhance the economic status of women.

WFM grants have ranged from $1,000 to $10,000. Grant  funds may support current programs, test new ideas and methods, improve organizational efficiency, or support advocacy efforts.
