Foundation, Inc.



Resources from Montana Women for Montana Women



There has always been an abundance of worthwhile projects in Montana that conformed to MTBPW mission and goals. For many years, members discussed the idea of an entity through which members could lend their support to those projects in a more significant way than could be achieved by individual organizations, and at the same time make BPW both more visible in Montana and synonymous with successful projects to help women.


Thus, in 1994, the Montana Business and Professional Women's Foundation, Inc. became a reality. It received a 501(c) (3) non-profit status designation in 1995.


The Shooting Star Program is currently being revamped and wont be offered at this time.......


The emblem is a rectangle with a mountain within a star with the words “Shooting STAR” beside it, and with a ribbon behind and under it.  Underneath is the phrase "Montana Women Rising to the Challenge”.  The motto is, "Resources from Montana women for Montana Women."  The Foundation’s goal is to empower Montana women.


Montana BPW Foundation, Inc. awards financial assistance to Montana women for advancement toward self-sufficiency, professional development, acquisition of skills, and business start-up and expansion.


Financial assistance and professional resources are available for educational seminars, professional training, and business development.


Funds may be used for the support of professional pursuits for such things as updating skills, purchasing software and equipment for small business development, etc.
