Our Foundation

market-1The Missoula Community Foundation is dedicated to preserving and enhancing the unique characteristics of Missoula. We often hear people say that they wouldn’t live anywhere else, and the Missoula Community Foundation wants to help individuals and families make a difference in the areas that matter most to them. We can help you have a real impact on what is most important to you about Missoula by connecting people who care with causes that matter.

The unique job of a community foundation is to stand at the center of the philanthropic patterns in a community. Missoula Community Foundation serves as a catalyst for positive change.

The Missoula Community Foundation serves as a central hub, connecting local donors and charities. We develop giving initiatives in response to specific needs. We are unique because we fund causes, non-profits, and initiatives identified by our board, and because local donors can direct funding to charities of their own choosing.

The Missoula Community Foundation is dedicated to helping any qualifying non-profit do more to fulfill its mission and strengthen its financial position in order to meet today’s and tomorrow’s needs. We encourage donors to consider funding permanent endowments to secure the future financial health of their favorite causes and organizations.  We provide the operational structure and expertise to manage endowments so they can grow through continuing contributions. We are committed to Missoula’s future by anticipating needs and mentoring the next generation.
