A healthy endowment is critical to any organization that depends on private support. Through planned giving, you can make sure that your compassion and caring for the arts lives on, knowing that everyone will have access to contemporary art and our innovative arts programming. That’s our commitment, and we know it’s yours too.
Whether in the form of unrestricted endowment gifts, special purpose funds, or legacy and planned gifts, the Holter has multiple ways for donors to support its endowment.
The Holter Museum is ready and willing to assist endowment donors in fulfilling their philanthropic dream of supporting contemporary art. When donors leave a gift to the Holter in a will or other estate plans, they are creating a lasting legacy for contemporary art that will inspire tomorrow’s artists and ensure the Holter’s mission for generations to come.
The Holter Museum has endowment accounts through the Montana Community Foundation and DA Davidson.

Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to the Holter Museum of Art.
Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may yield better tax benefits than donating cash.
Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original price paid for the stock.
By transferring stock, you may save on brokerage fees because you are switching ownership rather than selling the stock.
To arrange a gift of stock, you or your broker may contact our Finance Director Jolene King at 406-442-6400 x 106 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
