Local Community Foundations Convening

Information and Resources

For the Good of Montana Forever

Enjoy the annual Local Community Foundation Convening from anywhere in the state on Zoom! 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 are bringing you highly requested trainings, as well as two keynote speakers: Tara Mastel from MSU Extension, who will be sharing 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 - this convening has something for everyone, and everyone is welcome.

This is 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.
