Gianforte Family Foundation donating $50 million to Montana State University

The Gianforte Family Foundation will donate $50 million to Montana State University for construction of a building dedicated to its computing school, the university announced Friday.

The building will be home to MSU’s Gianforte School of Computing — named for a previous contribution from the Gianforte Family Foundation — and other classes including cybersecurity and computer engineering.


The university has called it a tie for the second largest donation in its history.
