Southwestern Montana COVID-19 Response Fund

In response to the crisis, The Bozeman Area Community Foundation and the Greater Gallatin United Way have launched a community response fund to address the pressing needs of individuals and the organizations serving them in Southwest Montana.

The Response Fund will provide flexible resources to organizations working with individuals and populations disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the health and economic consequences of this outbreak.

Initial funding will focus on five primary areas of need: food/supply distribution, emergency housing, emergency financial assistance, health and wellbeing, and programs/supplies needed to support crisis response. As the situation evolves and additional needs arise, the Response Fund’s priorities and scope may shift or expand to best serve the region throughout the crisis and recovery.

GGUW and BACF are actively working with community leaders, local government, public health and emergency management officials to monitor and respond to the immediate and evolving needs of the region resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the changing nature of this unprecedented situation, the Fund managers will be convening regional social service providers in order to identify shifts in community needs and address any gaps in crucial services.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • This fund will support crisis response efforts targeted towards residents of Southwest Montana, specifically in Gallatin, Park, Madison and Meagher Counties.


  • In this first round, we are not able to prioritize organizations that have lost revenue or are likely to lose future revenue due to canceled events or programs. We recognize these challenges, and as the crisis and long-term impacts continue to unfold, we will continue to work with the DSG to assess and evolve our funding strategies.
