Application Instructions 

This year, we're moving toward a more "electronic process," meaning you can submit your applications by either mail or email. The information we're requiring, however, remains the same. Your proposal should include the following. 

1. The application cover sheet

2. A two-page, double-spaced (or, approximately 500-600 word) narrative that includes 

• a project description

• goals and outcomes

• a short description of how you plan to use JMF grant dollars in your project

3. A preliminary budget (no more than one page is necessary)

4. If you are a 501(c)3 organization, include a scan or copy of your IRS verification letter as well. 

In addition … 

Other than those four items, please don't send any attachments to us with your application. 


Submitting your proposal


  • Email your proposal to grants@jerrymetcalfmontana.org with a subject line that includes your organization's name and makes it clear you have attached your proposal. 
  • We prefer a .pdf document, but we'll also accept documents in Word or Pages. 
  • We'll start accepting proposals for our 2024 Grant Cycle, check back then for our submission date (think March 15) and an updated application cover sheet.
