What We Fund

Investing in community-led solutions to improve the health and wellbeing of Western Montanans.

Our Focus
Headwaters Foundation is focused on changing the systems and policies that keep people from being healthy.

We view health as much more than a visit to the doctor’s office. A person’s wellbeing is powerfully influenced by factors ‘upstream’ from medical care such as access to nutritious food, safe and stable housing and the opportunity for positive childhood experiences.

Our Funding Areas

Headwaters Foundation serves the Flathead Nation and Montana’s 15 westernmost counties: Beaverhead, Deer Lodge, Flathead, Granite, Jefferson, Lake, Lewis and Clark, Lincoln, Madison, Mineral, Missoula, Ravali, Sanders, Silver Bow, and Powell.

Our Partners

We partner with organizations that are working to reduce barriers to health alongside Montanans who face them most – children and families who are disadvantaged, to help ensure that everyone, regardless of their age, race or income level, has the opportunity to thrive.
