What People Say About Us
"BSI, in identifying and publicizing “The Philanthropic Divide,” the large and growing gap in foundation assets between those states with the most assets and those with the least, has made an important contribution to the practice of philanthropy in the United States."

Benjamin R. Shute, Jr. Program Director, Democratic Practice

Corporate Secretary Emeritus, Rockefeller Brothers Fund
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

MNC's development has been supported by the following grantmakers:
