Several families and individuals have set up Endowment Funds that will support the work of Missoula Food Bank into the future.

The Montana Endowment Tax Credit allows charitable donors to pay less in Montana state income tax when they make a qualifying planned gift to a qualified Montana charitable endowment. The incentive is 40 percent of the gift’s federal charitable deduction, up to a $10,000 tax credit, per year, per individual, and a credit of 20 percent of a direct gift by a qualified business, up to $10,000 per year.
