The Women’s Foundation of Montana’s work benefits women and girls as well as our communities overall. As the only statewide fund dedicated to funding for women and girls, donations are leveraged through our endowment. Our research, initiatives, and grant making are focused on lasting change for women and girls.

As an endowed fund of the Montana Community Foundation, your contribution is  part of our professionally managed portfolio. In partnering with the community foundation, we share resources and expertise, making our organization’s operations efficient and your contribution effective.


The Women’s Foundation of Montana works to increase the number of women in leadership by supporting leadership programs, as well as hosting our own PowerHouse Montana initiative in support of Women’s leadership and entrepreneurship.

We believe increasing philanthropy to support the women of Montana benefits us all.

The Foundation promotes economic independence through advocacy, research, and education.  Our research, such as the Status of Women in Montana Report, identifies the needs of Montana’s women and girls to inform grant making and provide philanthropists with tools they need to impact social change. We provide data that informs policymakers and nonprofits serving women and girls in Montana and raises the profile of women’s challenges, inspiring public discourse and ultimately creating solutions.

The Foundation also invests in nonprofits across the state by providing grants in support of systemic change, financial education, women’s entrepreneurship, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) programming and opportunities.
