About High Stakes Foundation
High Stakes Foundation was formed 8 years ago by Dr. Mary Stranahan. The President of the Foundation is Dawn McGee and the Program Officer is Cherie Garcelon. High Stakes has granted $5,770,000 across Montana.
The world’s top climate scientists have warned that humanity’s influence on the climate is unequivocal, with wide-ranging impacts across the planet, from rising seas to melting ice.
In other words, we are in High Stakes times.
We believe in solutions which support vibrant, interconnected communities that give everybody in the local community a direct, long-term interest in the prosperity, health, and beauty of Montana.
What We Fund
We have recently made some changes to our focus areas – including adding a Special Initiative. Our new Special Initiative will support those organizations working on climate change and coal. In particular, we are interested in talking to those organizations that are doing community organizing, strategy and education about the negative effects of coal being exported to China through the rail systems that run through Montana.
