Grants

We fund projects that will enhance our rural community.

The Stibnite Foundation focuses on grant-making in the West Central Mountains of Idaho, an area encompassing the communities of southern Idaho County, Valley County and Adams County (Region). 

The Stibnite Foundation will award grants through a once yearly competitive grant cycle.

 The 2022 grant cycle runs April 1 through May 31, 2022.

In 2020, the Stibnite Foundation distributed $50,000 in grant funds to 14 organizations. Each year, the Stibnite Foundation will adjust its total distribution amount to meet the IRS requirements based upon the actual assets of the foundation.

All grants are limited to qualified tax-exempt entities located in and serving the Region. These include nonprofits exempt under the Internal Revenue Code.

Ideal grant applications will show regional impact, collaboration or cooperation among community partners, and investment from the community. Requests for general operations, staffing, and administration are not preferred. All applications will be reviewed by all board members following a pre-established set of priorities.

Grant recipients will agree to use the Stibnite Foundation’s logo and recognize the foundation’s investment in all project related press releases or publications, in all forms (print, online, etc.).

The grant application is purposefully designed to be open ended so organizations may use existing financial documents, and even prepared narratives to complete it. By having an open process, we feel organizations will be able to tell their story.
