Bair Family Trusts
The Charles M. Bair Family Trust was established to commemorate the legacy of one of Montana’s greatest and most influential families. The Bair family’s dedication to philanthropic work in Montana is carried on, in accordance with the wishes of the last surviving member of the family, Alberta M. Bair, who died in May 1993.
The Trust strives to continue the direction and initiatives maintained by Alberta M. Bair and her late sister, Marguerite, in granting financial contributions to qualifying organizations. Grant applications and accompanying certification of tax-exempt status are reviewed by a Board of Advisors.
A grant from the Bair Family Trusts in 2019 created the Bair Family Trusts Nursing Scholarships, awards that help non-traditional nursing majors with financial need access higher education.
