The Moonlight Community Foundation began informally in 2011 and became a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit organization in July of 2014. They are the non-profit charitable arm of the Moonlight Community consisting of property owners, club members and developers that comprise the Moonlight Basin area of Big Sky, Montana. Their vision is to bridge the Moonlight Community to “Causes that Matter.” Thanks to the generous support of our donors, they have been able to support many local organizations and programs through our grants.
