The Mission of the West Yellowstone Foundation is to strengthen the sense of community and to enhance the economic vitality in West Yellowstone and Hebgen Lake Basin, Montana
West Yellowstone Community Foundation Established in 1992 by
Steffi & Arne Siegel
West Yellowstone Foundation is a result of a visionary dream, hard work and dedication of its Founders. There is no greater call than that to be of service of others. Join us as we serve our community.
The Foundation was formed as the first affiliate of the Montana Community Foundation. We are now joined by a collective of community affiliates, dedicated board members whose, goal is being advocates for our children, elders, cultural heritage, natural environment, our economic vitality and for the great many visitors, we welcome from around the world each year.
The charitable contributions made to the West Yellowstone Foundation have grown into endowments, scholarships, gifts, bequests and grants that serve our non-profits, our students, historic preservation, artists and families; endowments that serve us all.
Our Community is unique because of its gateway to the world’s First National Park. Yellowstone National Park is a global destination known for its spectacular nature, fly fishing and geothermal features, including the largest super-volcano on the continent. Yellowstone National Park draws visitors from all over the world to our doorstep, yet our high elevation, deep snow and remote Montana niche keep necessary resources at arm’s length.
Join us in forming partnerships and allocation resources to set the stage for a better tomorrow. Unite with us in reserving what we all love about our West Yellowstone region for generations to come.
