About this funder:



Foundation History

Matt S. Browning and Barbara Kimball Browning founded the Browning Kimball Foundation in 1978. It is a unique private foundation dedicated to reaching out to charitable organizations that improve the quality of living for people and communities throughout Montana.

The Directors are sensitive to the needs of communities, large and small, and look for mission statements that enhance living conditions for people with all levels of abilities.

Long-term partnerships are not uncommon with the Browning Kimball Foundation. Worthy recipients that fulfill expanding needs of their communities year after year are considered favorably by the Foundation.

Foundation Mission

The Browning Kimball Foundation is committed to improving the quality of life through support of youth and families, health with an emphasis on prevention, arts and humanities, and sustainable agriculture in Montana.

Foundation Policies

In an effort to promote good governance and fundraising practices, the Browning Kimball Foundation may limit grants of operational support to four (4) successive years. At that time, the Board may decided to cease funding. Browning Kimball Foundation grantees are encouraged to maintain a large funding base and not become reliant on one funder.
