Current Engagements

 

 

CEO
Montana Healthcare Foundation

Montana Healthcare Foundation (MHCF) envisions a measurably healthier State through improving access, education, research, and public policy. Headquartered in Bozeman, MHCF was established in June 2013, and came into existence as result of the sale of Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Montana to a private corporation. It is estimated that MHCF corpus will be between $140 - $150 million, making it the largest grant maker focused on the healthcare needs of Montana residents.

This is an exciting opportunity for the CEO to grow and build an organization from the ground-up with the help of a supportive, respectful, mission-driven Board of Trustees. The CEO will support their strategy planning for defining and clarifying the vision and mission of this Foundation, and will be instrumental in establishing MHCF’s culture and fully developing its philanthropic initiatives.
