A Word from

John at Amicus Foundation

Sheila and I enthusiastically announce our matching grant program for Montana’s Independent classroom teachers. This initiative isn’t just another project; it encapsulates everything the Amicus Foundation cherishes. Through education, whether it was Sheila’s dedication to ESL or our collective endeavors with special needs children, we’ve seen firsthand the power of knowledge. With our matching grant program, every donation is matched, amplifying its impact. This means more tools for teachers, brighter classrooms, and the opportunity for every student to dream big.

Our Projects


John and Sheila Lake of The Amicus Foundation are thrilled to announce a $100,000 matching fund for independent schools in Montana. This will fund a whopping 50% of up to $200,000 in classroom education programs and teaching tools. We are a faith based Christian organization. We uphold family values and believe strongly in the constitution and individual responsibility.

The children sitting in classrooms today are our future. It is our mission at The Amicus Foundation to strengthen faith-based and independent schools, which are crucial to creating a better America. We seek to bless teachers with the resources they need to provide enriching classrooms for student learning.

This unique opportunity for your school is designed specifically to support teacher’s classroom projects by providing supplemental funding on a match basis for projects aligned with the values and mission of The Amicus Foundation.

Funds raised by teachers employed at a registered 501(c)(3) PreK-12th grade educational institution located in the state of Montana will be matched dollar-for-dollar by The Amicus Foundation. 

Teachers can utilize the online classroom funding platform, Beyond Measure, to create a project that lists their needs to prospective donors that will be matched up to $100,000 by our organization. For example, if a teacher needs $1,000 to acquire 5 microscopes for a science class, they would use the classroom funding platform at to post a $1,000 project. The Amicus Foundation will match every donation made to that project until the goal is met or until the project end date is reached.

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity! For more information, please contact our Grants Director, Olivia Brown, at [email protected] or 406-506-6445.”

God Bless.
