Washington Foundation Gift to The Max S. Baucus Institute Creates Path to Public Service for University of Montana Students

October 9, 2018View for printing

The Max S. Baucus Institute has received an endowed gift of $1 million from the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation that enables 10 University of Montana students to intern in congressional and policy-related offices in Washington, D.C., every summer.

Two other gifts to the Baucus Institute from Lee Freeman and Tony James also will provide start-up funding to grow the institute programs focused on public service.

These gifts are the first announced since UM publicly launched Campaign Montana, the most ambitious fundraising campaign in the University's history.
