Special Projects

In addition to our general grants program, these are the specific initiatives that we fund.

Church Outreach Grant Packages

The Gianforte Family Foundation strongly believes the local church has a valuable, irreplaceable role to play in their community. To help increase the capacity of local Christian churches to reach out beyond the “pews” with the love of Christ, our foundation is offering grants (up to $3,300) to be used for new outreach and community-building programs that:

  • Strengthen Marriages & Families
  • Help Individuals Flourish Economically
  • Offer Addiction or Trauma Recovery Tools
Faith-Finances Class Graduation

Eligibility Criteria

Tax status:  We only fund work done by organizations ruled to have tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Geographic location:  In most cases, our funding is limited to organizations in Montana.  We will occasionally provide funding to organizations that operate nationally, when their work aligns with our focus areas and impacts the nation as a whole.  We rarely fund work overseas unless we have a personal connection with the group doing the work.

Funding amounts:  We do not generally fund projects where we are the sole providers of funding, nor do we like to account for more than 50% of the budget for a project (and in most cases, less).  In addition, we prefer to start with smaller amounts for organizations that we have not worked with in the past.

Focus areas: We limit our funding to work that falls within one of our focus areas:
