Three local nonprofits received grants from the Missoula Community Foundation to build stronger organizations and create a more vibrant community. The foundation selected Blue Mountain Clinic, Inc., Home ReSource and Missoula Community Access Television (MCAT) as the 2016 grant recipients of the Missoula Project for Nonprofit Excellence (MPNE).

These three nonprofits were awarded funds to work with a local consultant to assess their organizational strengths and needs for improvement. The goal is to identify ways each group can become more effective and efficient in serving clients and their communities, and then help them execute the recommendations to strengthen internal operations necessary to reach their full potential.
