Noon Notes is funded completely by grants and donations, and is an organizational collaborative effort between MCMS, Montana State University, and Bozeman Public Schools. The original development committee was MCMS board members Loren Acton, Dennis Wentz, Renée Westlake, Gregory Young, Nina Matos, Julia Slovarp, and Ed Goldberg (who funded the first season).

Currently Julia Slovarp is the Artistic Developer, Renée Westlake is the Program Coordinator, and the managing committee is Dennis Wentz, Andrew Loftus, and advisor Ed Goldberg.
