Why should you invest in Leadership Montana?


An investment in Leadership Montana is an investment in the future of our great state. Leadership Montana is a privately funded nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Our sponsors and donors are investors in Montana’s future prosperity and directly impact the work of our program participants and alumni.

Sponsorship Opportunities

We offer a number of opportunities to support the work of Leadership Montana and welcome custom partnerships. We appreciate your consideration and look forward to answering any questions that you may have about these opportunities and the specific marketing benefits that accompany each.

Supporting Leadership Montana as a program sponsor means that you fund the heart of our organization. Through sponsorship, you will directly impact the powerful program that we provide for our carefully selected participants, who will become very familiar with your company and your support of Leadership Montana. Investments at this level range from $1,000 to $50,000

For seven separate sessions, Leadership Montana visits communities across the state for a hands-on experience in each area. We dive deeply into the local economy, meet with community leaders, and gain a strong understanding about the challenges and opportunities our towns are facing. Session sponsors support these visits by funding our receptions, meeting spaces, dinners, and lunches, which is a great way for your business to make a lasting impact on our experience in your town. Sponsorships generally range from $500 to $3,000 and may include in-kind donations.

Each September, we host our annual signature event, The Confluence in various Montana communities. This event is open to the public and offers sponsors significant marketing benefits and a unique opportunity to support our organization. Sponsorships range from $500 to $3,000.

Our inaugural Lessons in Leadership speaker series had more than 1,000 attendees and is another way we provide leadership training to the general public. Sponsorships range from $1,000 to $10,000.

Through our annual women’s leadership retreat,  we connect our alumni members to build strong relationships while enhancing our leadership skills to build a better Montana for all. Sponsorships range from $500 to $5,000.

Leadership Montana partners with the Montana Community Foundation, who manages our endowment to support our work well into the future. If you are interested in making a planned gift to benefit from the Montana Endowment Tax Credit, we hope you will consider Leadership Montana.
