Overview:

Since the beginning, BCF has controlled costs by relying on our Trustees to volunteer significant amounts of personal time during this initial growth period. With our volunteer support, BCF has assisted local nonprofits and individuals in growing their own resources by offering low fees and low thresholds for establishing accounts. Most BCF board members are seasoned philanthropists with experience in fund raising, investing and estate planning. The desire to share their knowledge is what has prompted them to commit energy and personal resources to serve the region through the Billings Community Foundation. The plan has been to postpone full time staffing as long as possible while offering flexible solutions and maintaining a high level of service. The chart of Client and Asset growth since 2010 shows the success of this strategy.  

The Billings Community Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt innovative community fund. It is governed by local volunteer citizens promoting philanthropy and charitable giving throughout the Greater Yellowstone Valley Region.
