What People Say About Us
"BSI’s Montana Nonprofit Connections Program is one of the most extraordinary examples of capacity building in the country, and serves as a national rural model for collaborative grantmaking."

Janine Lee, Co-Founder Grantmakers for Effective Organizations

President & CEO, Southeastern Council of Foundations
The Funders Collaborative

Montana Nonprofit Connections (MNC) provides a unique opportunity for foundations, public grantmakers, networks/associations of nonprofit organizations, and governmental agencies to build the capacity of nonprofits statewide, in a region, or for a particular sector of the nonprofit community.

"Being a part of MNC has been well worth our foundation's investment. We've benefited from the peer learning and partnership and we've been able to leverage our dollars to make important things happen for the nonprofit sector across Montana. It feels good to know we're a part of an effort which is having a measurable impact and has the potential to have an even larger one. By investing in capacity on a statewide basis, I truly feel we will be successful in helping to attract more national foundation dollars into our state. Everyone, even our foundation, benefits from that."
Laurie Bishop, trustee, Solid Rock Foundation
