Local Community Foundations Convening

Information and Resources

For the Good of Montana Forever

In October we hosted our 2021 Annual Local Community Foundation Convening virtually. As we continue to live in challenging times, we decided to make this year's convening virtual to be accessible and safe for all.

We kicked off the first session of the convening with the State of Montana Community Foundation with MCF President and CEO, Mary Rutherford and a LIVE Local Community Foundation Panel. The next two nights we were able to bring you two highly requested keynote speakers: Tara Mastel from MSU Extension, who shared the results of the ReImagining Rural Newcomer’s Survey, as well as a special presentation from Dr. Marsha Goetting on dying without a will and property ownership. 2021’s convening had something for everyone.

This was a three-day virtual convening - see agenda below.

The Montana Community Foundation is proud to share highly requested content from our team and guest speakers Tara Mastel and Marsha Goetting.
