The Moonlight Community Foundation (MCF) semi annual grant cycles and commitments to the Big Sky Relief Collaboration has generated over $365,000 that has been awarded to local nonprofits this year.
That includes the recent $129,000 that has been allocated to 14 local organizations in grants and scholarships “to support programs and initiatives for youth, education, conservation, and the underserved needs benefiting Big Sky,” a press release said.
MCF aims to bridge the Moonlight Basin Community to “Causes that Matter,” executive director Anna Shipley explained.
The organization informally started in 2011 and became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 2014.
“Since 2015, MC has awarded over $1 million to local nonprofits who are working tirelessly to make Big Sky better for all of us. MCF holds two annual fundraisers – the Spring Social and Summer Bridge event,” Shipley said.
