HCCF Call for Grant Applications


October 6, 2017

From Hill County Community Foundation

The Hill County Community Foundation is seeking applications for the 2017 grant cycle. All Hill County-area nonprofits are encouraged to apply for a grant. HCCF is looking to fund special projects that organizations are coordinating; HCCF cannot fund operating costs or salaries. Eligible applicants can request up to $500 for their project.

The HCCF Endowment awards grants in the following three areas:

• Arts and Culture

• Basic Human Needs

• Community Beautification

In the 2017 year, HCCF was able to award funding to the Bullhook Blossoms Garden Club and Havre Public Schools. HCCF grants allowed the Bullhook Blossoms Garden Club to create a Blue Star Veterans Memorial Marker at the Memorial Park in Havre, and Havre Public Schools was able to continue the backpack program providing food for local students. Other previous grant projects include new signage for Fort Assinniboine Interpretive Center, bike racks for the Havre Main Street Revitalization Project, benches and trail-side amenities for Havre Trails, and funding for the Shop with a Cop program.

The Hill County Community Foundation is an affiliate of the Montana Community Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to cultivate a culture of giving to empower Montana communities to flourish. Through the power of permanently endowed funds, HCCF helps donors achieve their lasting philanthropic goals and provides Hill County nonprofits with sustainable income.

“Montana currently has tremendous wealth leaving our beautiful State,” said Pam Veis, HCCF advisory committee chair. “Community Foundations are a relatively new concept to Montana and can help pave the way to ensuring that at least some of that wealth stays in our local communities. The size of our Hill County Community Foundation (HCCF) grants will grow as our permanent endowment grows.  HCCF has great potential to be a stable resource for positive change as our community evolves in this ever-changing world.”

The deadline for applications is Oct. 27. Interested applicants can contact Pam Veis for more information or to request an application packet:
