Strategic Initiatives

Building a framework for transformational change

The resources of the Headwaters Foundation belong to the communities we serve. As a foundation, it’s our responsibility as good, responsible stewards of these funds to create the most significant impact possible. To this end, we seed multi-year, multi-faceted strategic initiatives that build community capacity to collaboratively address the issues that keep Western Montanans from being healthy.

We build our initiatives with community at the center of the work. To that end, through 2023, we are focused on two large initiatives:

  • Early Childhood: An initiative focused on building resiliency for Montana’s youngest children
  • American Indian Health and Wellbeing: An initiative focused on improving the health and wellbeing of American Indians in Western Montana
