Facility Enhancements

Great Falls voters were generous in supporting a bond issue for school construction projects. The Foundation is proud to add value to that effort by facilitating private donations to furnish and equip the new spaces and to refurbish existing spaces. Philanthropic families and businesses are creating a legacy of educational excellence through their gifts.
