We are proud partners of GivingTuesday. Join us on December 1 in this global day of giving and unity. GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world.

This year, we’re asking for you to give to the Montana Chamber Foundation. Your donation will be used to support Workforce Development and Entrepreneurship programs such as Youth Entrepreneurs, The Prospects, Career Awareness, and promotion of Career and Technical Education. 

Montana’s next generation of entrepreneurs, business leaders, and community builders are currently being taught by a growing army of creative high school educators how to transform challenges into opportunities for innovative problem-solving. In their classes, students are acquiring the mindset, learning essential skills, and being provided with real-world experiences to proactively transform their lives and the lives of their families and communities.

Your generous contribution to the Montana Chamber Foundation will ensure that we can find, reward, and celebrate these budding entrepreneurs. Imagine how bright Montana’s future will be when these promising students pursue their post-graduation careers and unleash their entrepreneurial spirit for the benefit of Big Sky Country.

As a part of Envision 2026, our ten-year strategic plan, the Montana Chamber Foundation is working to build an opportunity for business growth and prosperity by improving Montana’s talent pipeline and fostering the entrepreneurial spirit.

How do we know the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Montana’s high schools?

  •           While still at Chinook High School, a student started a truck bumper fabrication business that is now paying for his tuition at MSU-Havre.
  •           Two students at Rapelje High School acted on a community need and started a business that assists elderly and disabled citizens by hauling their trash to the transfer station.
  •           During the pandemic, last spring, a student at Manhattan High School launched a drive-in movie theater that Garth Brooks designated as one of the 300 national sites to host his virtual concert last June.
  •           A Billings student started a custom jewelry business to raise money for organizations that support youth facing emotional challenges.
