December 2016 Economy at a Glance: The Economic Contribution of Montana's Nonprofits

The Economic Contribution of Montana's Nonprofits

There are over 2,000 nonprofit establishments throughout Montana. These nonprofits have a wide range of purposes that are ultimately intended to benefit the community. Think of United Way, the Humane Society, or Habitat for Humanity as a few examples among many. Many individuals receive the benefits of nonprofits, perhaps without even realizing it. Consider the enjoyment of the symphony, the theater, or a museum. These art and entertainment organizations are often nonprofits. Or consider education at a private school. Nongovernment educational institutions are also often nonprofits, as are many healthcare facilities and religious organizations.
