Overview:

Since its inception, MJF has awarded nearly $7 million to scores of organizations across Montana. MJF grant funds provide essential legal help to those who would otherwise be forced to navigate our civil justice system alone. Our grantees help Montanans stay in housing, receive medical care, escape abusive and violent environments, and rebuild their lives on a path to health, safety, and self-sufficiency.

Program Grants

The purpose of Montana Justice Foundation Program Grants are to provide funding to qualified non-profit organizations committed to one or more of MJF’s charitable objectives, which include:

  • supporting and encouraging the availability, accessibility, and quality of legal services, especially services to the vulnerable and under-served
  • Increased public understanding of the law and the legal system through education
  • Promoting the effective administration of justice
  • Increasing public understanding of and access to alternative dispute resolution

Program Grants will provide general operating support for well-established programs that have a strong history of success in meeting the MJF’s charitable objectives. Organizations receiving Program Grants must demonstrate potential for strong leadership, well-defined organizational vision, sound fiscal management, and strong partnerships within their communities.

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