Help Us Build A Stronger Future
In building a permanent endowment for The Parenting Place programs!
In our first 40 years, The Parenting Place has worked with our families, donors, and partners to build funding stability to support our current programs, and to put appropriate operations and facility maintenance reserve funds in place. Now, our donors and leadership team are helping us to establish a permanent endowment with the Montana Community Foundation (MTCF).
How does a permanent endowment work?
Gifts made to MTCF for The Parenting Place Endowment will be professionally managed and forever invested. When the Endowment reaches $25,000 or more, it pays out earnings each year that support The Parenting Place programs long into the future. We know that our trauma-informed and family-strengthening work will change and grow over time, but will remain value-added and vital to our families and community. Our Parenting Place Endowment is one important way that gifts today ensure support for our programs long into the future.
