The University of Montana Western Foundation exists to inspire generosity and connect donors with their passions in order to promote access and excellence in higher education at the University of Montana Western.

With this in mind, the Montana Western Foundation cultivates donor and alumni relationships, assists students with scholarship support and assists with program and capital project support across the university.

The UMW Foundation was established in 1978 to support the mission of the University of Montana Western. The foundation and alumni office are housed together to better serve and engage our alumni and donor constituents.
