Personalize Your Giving

Setting Your Community up for success is easier than you think

Let's Personalize Your Giving

You have a unique opportunity to set up the Missoula community for success for generations to come. It is important to understand your passions as well as your philanthropic wishes in order to best serve your interests. 

We want you to feel like part of the Missoula Community Foundation family, so please feel free to explore who is part of our team and what funds we currently hold.

Where Do Your Passions Lie?

It is important to understand your passions and interests so that the Foundation can connect your ideas to fund opportunities and organizations in the region.

How do you want to change your community through giving?

What are your unique interests?

How will the Missoula community be different because of your commitment?

Are there any topics that you feel need more attention?

When Do You Want to Start Giving?

You have two options for the timeline of your gift to the community. You can create one of our standard funds, or you can create a permanent endowment, which is eligible for the Montana Endowment Tax Credit.

Which Fund is Best for You?

There are many different types of funds. The best way to narrow down the right one for you is through a meeting with Marcy Allen. She can explain how different fund options work as well as help connect you to your passions.
