Based in Helena, Montana, Student Assistance Foundation (SAF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing students with the knowledge and tools to fund and pursue their postsecondary education.
Our local outreach office is located at Flathead Valley Community College and offers many services including information on college success strategies, the financial aid process, debt management and career planning. All of our services are free to the public.
Personal assistance is provided to students and their families regardless of where they plan to attend school and to anyone in the community who has questions on grants, scholarships, student loans, etc. We can also provide a variety of educational presentations for your school or organization.
SAF's nonprofit status allows us to return surplus earnings from our business activities to Montana students in the form of grants, scholarships, outreach, public benefit programs and student loan benefits. Need-based Acce$$ Grants provided to Montana postsecondary institutions serve as the cornerstone for SAF's public benefit work. To date, we have delivered over $22 million in grants and public benefit programs to Montana students.
We are located in the Bigfork High School Building, Room 108. Check in at the front desk and you will be directed to the SAF office.
