Bozeman Health Foundation

For over two decades, Bozeman Health Foundation has been generating private financial support for vital services and facilities right here at home, contributing to Bozeman Health's mission to improve community health and quality of life. The foundation, formed in 1998 as a non-profit corporation governed by an independent board of directors, is charged with administering all philanthropic gifts for Bozeman Health.

Medicine has changed greatly since our hospital began operations in 1911, and Bozeman Health has been able to stay at the forefront and expand its health care services because, for more than a century, the community has been generous with their charitable support. At the same time, the population has seen continuous growth, resulting in ever-increasing demands for top quality health care services that cannot be met exclusively with our health system’s resources. To meet growing needs, the Bozeman Health Foundation has raised more than $20 million and responsibly invested permanent endowment funds to help underwrite current and future medical opportunities. Through philanthropic partnerships, the foundation strives to ensure that services will continue to advance health care for all of those living in and visiting this region.

In the News


Big Sky Medical Center

Bozeman Health Foundation and Bozeman Health Big Sky Medical Center are proud that charitable commitments for the first new hospital to be built in Montana in more than forty years have exceeded $3 million in cash and in-kind support. Jason Smith, Executive Vice President of Philanthropy at Bozeman Health Foundation, shared that a combined pledge of $1 million from Yellowstone Club, YC Community Foundation, Moonlight Basin and the Spanish Peaks Mountain Club have helped Big Sky Medical Center to meet the fundraising challenge set by the Charles and Peggy Stephenson Family Foundation to match their $850,000 gift to provide for a high-quality MRI. The 1.5 Tesla MRI was installed in Big Sky Medical Center on October 23, 2015. In addition to closing out the MRI challenge grant, these major pledges from the four entities, along with gifts from several other supporters, will help to establish the Fund for Excellence and Innovation in Big Sky Patient Care. This fund will ensure that those who know the Big Sky community and its healthcare needs best are able to acquire new leading-edge equipment, to have their staff members trained in new techniques and to more quickly provide new kinds of treatments and services to patients that may not otherwise be available in Big Sky.
