A Foundation for a Future
“Education is a human right with immense power to transform.
On its foundation rests the cornerstones of freedom, democracy
and sustainable human development.”
– Kofi Annan, former United Nations Secretary-General
and 2001 Nobel Peace Prize Recipient
There is no shortage of wonder in Montana. Nicknamed the “Treasure State,” there are riches to be found in the highest peaks to the lowest plains. As the fourth largest state, this expanse under the Big Sky beckons people in search of something greater.
Students seeking to make their mark in Montana and beyond come to Montana State University Billings. They know that with the right combination of education and experience, the possibilities for a brighter future are endless. But many of them face obstacles – like navigating work schedules, family demands and financial strains – in their pursuit of that future. That’s why the Montana State Unibersity Billings Foundation exists. We are there to provide the pathways and eliminate the barriers to help students succeed.
Former students like Judy Martz, the only woman to serve as Governor of Montana, renowned Native American artist Kevin Red Star, and San Francisco 49er Bill Wondolowski got their start at MSU Billings. With the help of our foundation, students like them receive scholarship support, learn in state-of-the-art facilities, and achieve their educational dreams. For more than 50 years, we’ve made leaders and achievers of all types – and we’ve done it together.
It is you, our donors and friends, who make our mission possible. Your contributions, small and large, impact the students who enter the doors of Montana State University Billings seeking something greater, and leave someone greater. This annual report demonstrates our strength as we join one another to support students through charitable giving and stewardship.
Together, we are the foundation for their future.Read the 2018-19 Report Meet our 2018-19 Donors
