What People Say About Us
"BSI helped us assess our strengths and weaknesses as a board, and develop a plan to expand the Foundation’s role as a full service community foundation in Bozeman… a real turning point for our organization."

Gayle Hokanson, Former President

Bozeman Area Community Foundation
Endowment Development

Endowment development is an especially important tool to help nonprofits become more sustainable over time.

The Montana Endowment Tax Credit provides our state’s nonprofits with a powerful and compelling tool for endowment development that is the envy of development staff across the country. However it is under-utilized by Montana nonprofits both large and small.

 

An Endowment Seminar Series "To Endow or Not to Endow", May/June 2019 was offered. A Fall series will start in  September, look for future details. Questions, contact Mike Schechtman, mschect@bigskyinstitute.org, 406-443-5860.

HELENA ENDOWMENT DEVELOPMENT SURVEY

BSI recently conducted a comprehensive survey of Helena area nonprofits regarding the status of endowment development in their organizations, constraints that limit endowment development, and specific needs for training, coaching and technical assistance. The survey findings will guide the HDI Steering Committee and BSI in designing seminars on endowment development for the fall of 2017 and early 2018.

A list of the organizations invited to take part in the survey can be found here.
