    Hi. I am looking for grants to help with both operating expenses and a capital campaign. Har Shalom is a small Jewish temple in Missoula Montana. We serve Jewish families in Missoula and about a 100 mile radius radius from Missoula. Would you have any suggestions as to what entities might be willing to fund these kinds of grants? Thank you,Sue Fortner (406)549-9595
