What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

More and more people are wanting Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). We help with this goal. We provide employers with an easy way for their employees to give to nonprofits. Another issue we help solve is all nonprofits can use more money to further their mission. We help our member groups raise more funds from otherwise inaccessible sources.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to get as many workplace throughout the entire state of Montana to offer their employees the option of workplace giving. We also aim at giving those employees the broadest spectrum of choices of member groups that Value and address arts and culture, sustainable communities, protection of our environment, dignity in human services and animal welfare, tolerance and diversity, social activism and educational opportunities.

Our strategies include doubling the number of our member groups over the next 5 years. We aim to increase the number of workplaces and the number of workplaces using our electronic giving program. Finally we aim to double our campaign revenue over the next 5 years.

One of the primary strengths of Montana Shares is our member groups. With their staff and boards, we extend our reach far beyond the capabilities of our own staff. Increasing membership in Shares will extend this reach even farther.

We are starting this strategic process now. Nationally, we are coming out of the recession. Employees are finally getting raises in our critical governmental campaigns.
