Give the gift of sustainability

Nonprofit organizations and individuals can establish an endowment fund at Whitefish Community Foundation to help build essential program funding and long-term sustainable funding for a nonprofit.

Whitefish Community Foundation can help donors take advantage of the Montana Charitable Endowment Tax Credit.

Families, individuals, and corporations can open Permanent Endowments to benefit causes they care about. Endowments are designed to provide a source of funding for a nonprofit in perpetuity. Whitefish Community Foundation’s spending policy establishes the amount the fund can distribute each year.

Donations to a nonprofit endowment fund can be made with cash, check, appreciated securities, and from an IRA distribution. Donors can also take advantage of the Montana Tax Credit when making a gift to an endowment. Call President/CEO Alan Davis at (406) 863-1781 to learn more about the Tax Credit and how it works.
