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.

Grant applications for the 2020 granting cycle will be available here starting April 1, 2020 and must be submitted through the online platform by May 31, 2020. Awards will be announced by September 1, 2020 and will be funded before year end.  



In 2020, the Stibnite Foundation will distribute approximately $50,000 total in grant funds. Five to twenty grants will be awarded of varying amounts. 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.

The Stibnite Foundation’s ideal grant application 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 has purposefully been 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.
