Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

LinuxMint comes with it's own boot loader, Grub. Not sure why you want to use another one. Personally I think that just using the Grub from Mint would be not only easier, but safer, as it will setup everything for you, so you are less likely to make a mistake.
