Overview:

The mission of the Powell County Foundation is to develop a long-term funding source, by building our endowment and bringing in other funds, to assist local nonprofits as they carry out their missions and respond to new challenges.

The PCF was established in 1999 to provide nonprofit organizations in our county with a long-term funding source, securing and building endowments for the betterment of an area with limited financial resources and many needs.

From 2000 through 2008, we have awarded 82 grants totaling more than $70,000 to 38 area nonprofits. 

The Powell County Foundation has a Permanent Endowment, which holds over $90,000. The principal will remain intact forever, and the earnings will be used by the local board for grants to nonprofits around Powell County.

One role of the Powell County Foundation is to bring grant funds from other sources into the area to supplement local efforts, grants which would not have been possible otherwise. We are especially grateful to the Montana Community Foundation and the Simperman-Corette Foundation for their support.
