A legacy of leadership and giving.
The Women’s Foundation of Montana was established in 1999 with a $500,000 challenge grant from Chambers Family Fund to the Montana Community Foundation. The Chambers Family Fund sought to build a permanent resource for women and girls in Montana, where the family’s oil business previously operated.
The challenge was met in January 2005 when the $500,000 from the Chambers Family Fund was matched dollar-for-dollar to establish the initial $1 million permanent endowment for the Women’s Foundation of Montana.
Today, the Women’s Foundation of Montana continues to build its endowment to create a permanent source of capital to advance women’s economic independence and a brighter future for girls.
