Foothills is blessed to have a permanent endowment fund to support our school thanks to the forward thinking of our founding families. The fund is overseen and managed by the Foothills Endowment Committee.
Donations to the fund are considered unrestricted unless given with specific purpose or time restriction by the donors. The purpose of the fund is to provide for long-term needs of the school. As a result donations are invested to provide a more consistent stream of earnings which can be used or compounded.
The State of Montana established the Montana Endowment Tax Credit in 1997 to encourage charitable giving to qualified endowments by offering incentives to Montana taxpayers. It was extended until 2025 during the 2019 Montana Legislative Session. The FCCS endowment is a qualified endowment for these benefits.
Donors interested in supporting the Foothills Endowment or making other planning giving arrangements are encouraged to contact our Advancement Office at 406-452-5276. Donors are also encouraged to discuss giving options and tax benefits with their tax professional. Additional information about the Montana Endowment Tax Credit can be found on the Endow Montana website.
