Experience a donor advised FUND

A Donor Advised Fund offers individuals and families the ease and flexibility of giving, similar to a private foundation but without all the expense and administration. Gifts of cash or appreciated securities can be donated to set up your fund. You use your fund to make grants to charities over a period of time. Your gift can grow tax free through several investment options. The Community Foundation will do all the administration so that you can focus on your philanthropy.

Leave Your Legacy

A Legacy Fund is a charitable tool that allows you to set up a bequest to your community to direct your gift to the nonprofits that are aligned with your interests and passions. A Legacy Fund is a designated endowment fund that allows your gift to make annual distributions from your named fund in perpetuity. It is a wonderful way for you to leave a legacy to your community and be remembered for it.                                

Build Sustainable Growth for Local Nonprofits

The Montana Qualified Endowment Credit offers donors the opportunity to save on their Montana tax liability while providing a sustainable source of funding for their favorite charities. Donors can receive a state income tax credit of 40% of the present value of a qualifying planned gift, up to $10,000 per year for an individual ($20,000 if filing jointly).
