High Stakes Foundation

Increasing the Odds for Everyone


High Stakes Foundation was formed in 2008 by Dr. Mary Stranahan. The President of the Foundation is Dawn McGee and the Grant Administrator is Megan Robson.  To date, High Stakes has granted over $6,000,000 across Montana.

The world’s top climate scientists have warned that humanity’s influence on the climate is unequivocal, with wide-ranging impacts across the planet, from rising seas to melting ice.  

In other words, we are in High Stakes times.

We believe in solutions which support vibrant, interconnected communities that give everyone in the local community a direct, long-term interest in the prosperity, health, and beauty of Montana.
