Members of the exclusive Big Sky Montana Yellowstone Club recently came together and reached out in a big way to the Big Sky, Montana community.
The Yellowstone Mountain Club donated over $100,000 to The Big Sky LIFT Fund, a relief fund created to assist Big Sky, MT families in these tough financial times of late 2009.
Those eligible for the one-time Big Sky LIFT grant, must live or work in the Big Sky Resort Area Tax District.
Basically, it appears you could apply if you can demonstrate a reasonable financial need. You may be able to qualify if you have been adversely affected by the economy: for instance, you lost your job, you cannot pay your rent, medical or work-related bills. Grants are available up to $1,000 for Big Sky individuals and $2,500 for Big Sky, MT families only.
Helena-based "Montana Community Foundation" will administrate the Big Sky LIFT fund and reviewing of applications will be done by a local group of Big Sky, Montana residents. You will need to supply: 2007 tax return, and, if related, a letter of job termination and any other documents that would help demonstrate your need.
For more information on the application guidelines and rules, contact MCF at 406-443-8313. To print out the application, go to the Montana Community Foundation website.
