Community foundations help build and strengthen community and bring together people and organizations that want to make a positive impact in the world. They are tax-exempt public charities that guide philanthropy and are dedicated to improving the quality of life in the areas they serve.
Individuals, families, businesses and organizations work with community foundations to create permanent charitable funds that help meet the challenges of changing times. For donors, community foundations offer a range of charitable giving options and philanthropic advice that help fulfill donors' charitable and financial goals. For more information, contact www.mtcf.org.
Montana Community Foundation can help you with planned gifts that can help you support your community and help yourself, with 40% Montana income tax credit for individuals through a planned gift or 20% Montana tax credit simply by writing a check from your business or corporation. It's a gift that gives twice—helping you and the community or cause you care about. Contact Mary Rutherford at 406-443-8313 or MARYR@mtcf.org.
Here for Good—the Greater Glendive Community Foundation board of directors has decided to make a big impact with your generous donations to our community. We have taken a hands-on approach to improving downtown. The board of directors and other volunteers (teachers) painted the former chamber building downtown, landscaped the adjoining property, and hired the MSU Architecture Community Design class to create a vision for downtown after visiting with locals. We wrote a grant for a Downtown Master Plan with the City of Glendive which the city passed after community input. This is a plan for government, businesses, nonprofits and individuals to follow in the coming years. One of those downtown projects was the Barry underpass! The GGCF board is hands-on working on the underpass with help from local businesses and your donations. Funds will be available for local grants, as long as gifts and earning continue to grow to help local organizations with projects to improve Glendive. We believe in Glendive.
