Billings Community Foundation offers services that help individuals and groups performing charitable services start, grow, and achieve important community gains without delay and red tape. By extending legal, corporate, and fiscal sponsorship to new projects, Billings Community Foundation allows them to operate under the auspices of a fully qualified tax-exempt public charity.
Though fiscal sponsorship is sometimes described as a purely administrative relationship, at the Billings Community Foundation (BCF), it is a tool for providing support, building capacity, and creating community for new and exciting projects!
We processes all donations for the individual projects, files appropriate paperwork with government agencies, sees to paying all related bills of the project, issues tax-receipts to donors and maintains a professional office while the project is under contract with us!
We handle all the back office work, so the project supporters’ time is freed up to focus on their important mission!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this program was developed by a dedicated group of crafters in the Billings area to distribute handmade cloth masks to members of the health and nonprofit community.
The Billings Community Foundation has taken leadership of the project and continues to distribute masks with the help of 800+ volunteers.
