Campaign Montana

Through Campaign Montana, UM and the UM Foundation sought to inspire $400 million in private support by 2020. Campaign Montana inspired $450.9 million in giving from more than 34,000 donors, making it the most ambitious and successful higher education fundraising campaign in state history.

Over seven years — from July 2013 through August 2020 — generous donors united around the collective charge to elevate every University of Montana student, college, school and program.
