What We Do, Who We Are, & How You Can Help

What We Do

In a nutshell, the Absarokee Community Foundation helps local service and professional organizations build a stronger community by supporting their projects through monetary grants. The Foundation also has a permanent endowment fund established in order to plan for and ensure a thriving community into the future.

Who We Are

The Board of Directors of the Absarokee Community Foundation are area residents dedicated to enhancing our community. The members manage the foundation’s finances and reporting. They identify funding sources, solicit funds, and maintain processes for generating and responding to grant requests from community organizations.

How You Can Help

By donating to ACF, you can make a difference in our community! You can choose how your funds will be used and will receive tax benefits in return.

Need Help?

If you are an organization in need of assistance, you're in luck! The Absarokee Community Foundation Board of Directors reviews requests for funds and makes grants in May of each year. Additionally, throughout the year, the Board also addresses emergency grant requests.

Operation 2nd Chance

Help us continue supporting local organizations, businesses, and general community needs by donating to our fund below!

Note: Our payment processor is PayPal. If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can still check out by clicking “Continue” under the “Don’t have a PayPal account?” header on the bottom left of the checkout screen.

You can donate to two different ACF funds, depending upon how you want your money used:
– A local fund which distributes contributions annually for local projects
– A permanent endowment fund, administered by the Montana Community Foundation, a statewide association of foundations, that returns earnings annually and builds a legacy for the future.

Donations to the Absarokee Community Foundation Local Fund are distributed each year by the Board of Directors in response to requests from the community. You may declare the amount of your gift as a charitable donation on your federal and state tax returns.

Earnings from The Absarokee Community Foundation Permanent Endowment Fund also are distributed annually to local groups. You may list your gift to the endowment as a charitable donation on your federal and state tax returns. As a Montana resident, you may structure your donation to the endowment as a planned gift and take 40 percent of its value as a tax credit on your state return.
