Over the past nine years, the Community Foundation has awarded over $100,000 in grants supporting projects benefiting the people and communities of Northern Rosebud County.  
Project support ranges from helping the Forsyth Garden Club purchase and place benches at the Forsyth Senior Center, to supporting the purchase of iPads in every classroom in the Forsyth Elementary School, as well as supporting an effort to build Blue Bird boxes around the golf course, potentially leading to a full fledged nature trail.  In Rosebud, the Community Foundation aided the community with the development of the local park and renovations to the community center. 
And Ingomar has also benefited through grants to support their rodeo facilities.

“Over the past ten years we have supported many community programs, from community archery to Forsyth parks to school activities,” added Engle, “And we are looking forward to continuing that support, as we help build the Northern Rosebud County Communities future – now.”
“This year, thanks to the continued generosity of our donors, we have approved a special Signature Grant of $10,000, with an application due date of July 1st”. added Engle. 
“This grant will be a highlight for the year and will require a more detailed application process, which we will release after the April 1st grants are awarded.”

The CFNRC is an affiliate of the Montana Community Foundation.  The CFNRC maintains a permanent endowment that provides financial assistance to projects that benefit the people and communities of Northern Rosebud County, forever.  
The Community Foundation grew from an initial investment made by the Swede Schlesinger family as well as the late Edna Olson. It continues to grow thanks to the generous donors who support building the future...right here in Northern Rosebud County.
