Over the last two years, the University of Montana Foundation has doubled its donations from $20.7 million in gifts and pledges to $53.7 in fiscal year 2014. The partnership of the development team and faculty and administration made this exciting milestone possible. Working together, everyone at the university is invested in creating a culture of philanthropy and advancing donor relationships with university friends and alumni.

The University of Montana has partnered with Advancement Resources to implement professional education in philanthropy for leadership, development professionals, and deans. Advancement Resources is honored to work with University of Montana as it continues to experience major success in its philanthropic efforts.

Advancement Resources has helped my development team become very successful and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results we’ve had. With their donor-centric approach and comprehensive education program in philanthropy, we have found new ways to exceed our goals and break records in donations and pledges this last fiscal year. Advancement Resources helped open our eyes to new possibilities and lead the way to successful fundraising.
