PPL Montana Community Fund Advisory Board Members
From Kalispell to Colstrip, PPL Montana and its Community Fund build partnerships with organizations that make a difference in the lives of Montana families.
Working with members of the Community Fund Advisory Board, PPL Montana awards grants every spring and fall from its Community Fund to organizations that help address issues including education, the environment and economic development.
Since the fund was established in 2005, $1.2 million in grants has been awarded to nearly 200 organizations that are touching the lives of thousands of people and, as a result, improving the quality of life for all Montanans.
PPL Montana created its Community Fund, under the direction of a statewide advisory board, to further strengthen the partnership between PPL Montana and its communities.
Community Fund Advisory Board members represent various segments of community and business throughout the state as well as the employees of PPL Montana. Members of the board identify the most urgent educational, environmental and economic development needs in the state and work with the Community Fund to address them.
