Keeping Wealth in Montana
$123 billion. That is the estimated 50-year wealth transfer from one generation to the next in Montana, between 2010 and 2060. The question we must ask is this: How much of that wealth will remain in the communities and for the communities that helped build it?

Here in Montana we've seen the effect of wealth leaving our state. Communities have lost services, seen local businesses shut down and watched as children move away. Year after year it becomes more difficult to support local parks, churches, youth and senior centers, theaters and symphonies, museums and more.
This trend doesn't have to continue though. Here at the Montana Community Foundation, we help build permanent wealth to invest in Montana communities and the nonprofit organizations that make our towns the places we love to call home. By capturing just five percent of this transfer in permanently endowed funds, we will generate approximately $307 million a year for Montana nonprofits and communities.
Imagine what we could accomplish.
