The mission of the Montana Chamber Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit is to educate Montanans about the fundamentals of business operations, business needs and responsibilities, and contributions of business to society.
The foundation promotes and improves the economic development opportunities of the state and its communities by participating in educational projects and research.
A new tax study will be part of that research effort.
