MFEC’s MiniGrant Program – Fund YOUR FinLit Project

Who likes Free Money?

The Montana Financial Education Coalition is proud to promote local efforts to expand financial education across our state. We hope that through this mini-grant organizations will be able to implement activities in their communities with an emphasis on Financial Literacy Awareness.

The mini-grants are to augment your existing activities or implement a new strategy or program. We ask that each organization receiving a mini-grant provide a synopsis of the impact the mini-grant had on their program and community. We would love pictures of activities, participants and program materials as well, which will both showcase your efforts and grow the program.
