Jobs for Montana’s Graduates Foundation
Jobs for Montana’s Graduates Foundation (JMGF) was established to support
the mission and goals of Jobs for Montana’s Graduates (JMG).
The Foundation goals are to:
- Provide Scholarships for Graduating Seniors to pursue post-secondary
education and/or training. Many of the JMG students are not eligible for other
scholarships. Donations to JMGF can help to provide additional scholarships
to JMG graduates.
- Provide funding for students to attend the National Leadership
Conference in Washington D.C. Each year JMG sends students to the December Conference – a
4-day training session on leadership, communication and workplace skills. Students
are selected through an essay-writing competition. Cost of airfare,
lodging, meals, and conference registration is $1,200 per student. Donations
to JMGF can help send students to Washington D.C.
“JMG turned my son’s life around…after winning
a trip to Washington D.C., he began to participate in class, talk with students
in the halls, decided he could go to school, and pulled his grades up enough
to gain college acceptance…Thank you.” – JMG parent
- Send Students to the JMG Statewide Leadership Conference where they
will develop leadership, employment and teamwork skills. It costs approximately

and establish career goals. JMG provides each school a minimum grant of
$3,000. Donations to JMGF can help support a school in your community.
“JMG has given me the tools I need to build myself a successful future. It
has taught me that even though I am a teen mom of two, that doesn’t
mean I have no future..., I have to believe in myself and work for it.” DCHS
