The Montana Community Foundation

The Montana Community Foundation is a statewide community foundation that cultivates permanent philanthropy across the state of Montana by acting as bridge between donors and recipients. Our mission is to cultivate a culture of giving so Montana communities can flourish. Founded in 1988, MCF manages more than $150 million in assets and administers more than 1,400 philanthropic funds and planned gifts. Since its founding, MCF has reinvested more than $100 million in Montana through scholarships, grants, and programs.
