Overview:

The Sharing Montgomery Fund has a 21-year track record of supporting local nonprofits addressing the needs of the county’s low-income children, families, and seniors. Since its inception, Sharing Montgomery has given over $7.6 million to local organizations serving our most vulnerable neighbors.

Specifically, Sharing Montgomery has three priority focus-areas:

  • Safety-net
    • Emergency services which address the basic needs of low-income children, single adults, families, and seniors in crisis, and also prevention programs in health and human services which help residents as they work to lift themselves out of poverty.
  • Education
    • Academic and enrichment opportunities which empower youth from low-income families to make smart choices, discover their talents, succeed in school, and gain skills necessary for adulthood.
  • Workforce Development
    • Skill-building, professional accreditations, literacy, income generation, and other programs which enable unemployed and low-income individuals to achieve financial self-sufficiency.

Grants may support special projects, programs, or continuation funding, including general operating support. Grant awards may range from $5,000-$10,000.
