Dear Friends,

CEO Cindy WilliamsIt’s an honor to write to you as the UM Foundation’s new president and CEO.

In my ten years with the Foundation, I’ve been privileged to watch this organization change and grow. We have accomplished so much – in the last five years, the Foundation has distributed $22 million in scholarships, and we’ve added nine new endowed faculty positions thanks to private support. Because of our supporters, we have improved the lives of tens of thousands of students, faculty and staff.

The Foundation plays a key role in ensuring the University’s access, opportunity and excellence. We will continue to grow private support in the years to come, helping our committed donors make a difference on campus, in Montana and far beyond. Raising Montana provides just a small glimpse into the overall impact of your philanthropy. There are so many other stories waiting to be told–of lives changed and minds opened. We look forward to sharing them with you.

Thank you for your steadfast support.



Cindy Williams
President and CEO
University of Montana Foundation
