Monforton School opened its doors in 1888 to serve the rural families living just west of Bozeman.

Since then, it has become a home away from home to many children while maintaining educational success. Currently, the school provides a rich, well-rounded education to over 680 students in Kindergarten through eighth grade and employs about 80 teachers and staff.

Monforton School Foundation seeks to enhance and support the school’s educational heritage and reputation for excellence through individual donations and community partnerships.

When you give to us, you fund new library books, customized classes, science equipment, and more!

Your support is greatly appreciated
