Bozeman, Mont. (Feb 8, 2018) – The Montana Healthcare Foundation announced that Gerald Gray will join its board of trustees. Gray is the chairman of the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians and vice president of G&G Advertising. Montana Healthcare Foundation, Montana’s largest health-focused foundation, makes strategic investments to improve the health and well-being of all Montanans. The Foundation was established in 2014 under the direction of Attorney General Tim Fox, who appointed seven founding trustees to govern the foundation. Gray succeeds the late Mignon Waterman as the first new trustee since the foundation was established.

Our trustees bring tremendous experience and commitment to overseeing the foundation’s strategy and operations. Gerald’s approach to leadership and decades of service on behalf of rural and Native Montanans will be a great asset.
