MPA Endowment Fund

A Win-Win Way To Give

The MPA endowment fund through the Montana Community Foundation provides a stable foundation to sustain our good work for generations to come. 

What’s in it for me? 
While all donations to MPA are tax-deductible, a meaningful planned gift to our endowment can translate to some serious savings on your tax bill. The Montana Endowment Tax Credit offers a credit of 40% of a qualifying planned gift’s federal charitable deduction, up to a maximum of $10,000, per year, per person. It also allows a credit of 20% of a gift’s federal charitable deduction for a direct gift by a qualified business up to a maximum of $10,000 per year.

What is a planned gift?
Planned gifts are a way of giving that allows donors to maintain access to income during their lifetime, provide estate and tax planning tools, and build permanent wealth for Montana’s charities, nonprofit organizations, and local community foundations. Things like gift annuities, charitable trusts and some estate gifts all fall into this category. For more information, contact Nick Dietzen at or
