The Billings Community Foundation (BCF) is a nonprofit, tax-exempt, innovative community foundation governed by local citizens promoting philanthropy and charitable giving. As a 'regional community foundation’, we host the annual Yellowstone Valley Giving Day and our service encompasses many highly rural communities of south-central and south eastern Montana located in Yellowstone, Musselshell, Rosebud, Custer, Treasure, Bighorn, Carbon, Stillwater, and Fergus County. Our clients include community funds throughout this service area, as well as numerous nonprofits and philanthropic minded individuals.

Our Mission is: “To help individual donors and charitable organizations meet the needs of the Greater Yellowstone Region.”

As these needs change from year to year, the focus of our grant program will also change. This year, the Billings Community Foundation completed a strategic planning processes and has identified the following priorities to support our mission through providing  grants to charitable organizations:

Community and Regional Impact Grants – Support for organizations providing programs that respond to needs in the community.

Capacity Building for Nonprofit Organizations – support for organizations that are actively striving to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their work by investing in core operations.

Collaborative Grants – Support for two or more non-profit organizations working in unison on a common-purpose program or project.

Endowment Building - Obert Undem Community Vitality Endowment Fund - a matching grant initiative designed to build nonprofit capacity and sustainability through establishing or growing endowments at the Billings Community Foundation.
