Charity Begins at Home
You’ve lived here. You’ve worked here. Your community has been good to you.
You can give back with a gift to the Flathead’s future.
Over the next 10 years, Montanans will transfer billions of dollars to the next generation. It’s estimated that by 2020, $12 billion will pass from one generation to the next. The question is whether any of that wealth will stay behind in the communities that helped build it.
If only a small portion of this wealth—say 5%—was protected in permanent charitable endowments, millions of dollars would be available each year to invest in Montana communities and the charities that make them the places we love to call home.
Imagine a nonprofit community with sufficient permanent funding! How much of the time and effort currently spent fundraising for operations could be freed to deliver essential programs, enhance services, and plan for the future?
