Chair: Dr. Nancy Cornwell

Nancy Cornwell

Welcome to the Friends of MontanaPBS website. We are a group of dedicated volunteer supporters of Montana’s public television service. I encourage you to explore this site and learn about the work we do.

My hope is that you will be inspired to become a sustaining member of MontanaPBS. Your support will help insure that all Montanans continue to enjoy high quality news, music, entertainment, cultural and educational programming, including programs produced right here, in the Last Best Place.

Please drop us a note if you have any questions or comments. We’d love to hear from you!

As Dean of the College of Arts and Architecture, Dr. Cornwell oversees the School of Music, the School of Architecture, the School of Art, the School of Film and Photography, Montana Shakespeare in the Parks and the President's Fine Art Series.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to support MontanaPBS through advocacy, community engagement and fundraising.

From the Latin word advocare meaning to summon, call to one’s aid. Advocacy is the public support for or recommendation of a particular cause or policy.

Community Engagement
Community engagement refers to the process by which community benefit organizations and individuals build ongoing, permanent relationships for the purpose of applying a collective vision for the benefit of a community.

Fundraising or fund raising (also known as "development") is the process of soliciting and gathering voluntary contributions of money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations, or governmental agencies.
